26 Thali Recipes | A- Z Thali Recipes

26 Thali Recipes | A- Z Thali Recipes are recipes posted in alphabetical order from the Thali’s and Spreads of different cuisines.

What is A to Z Series ?

A to Z Series is a series where the Blogging Marathon group decides on a theme. The theme is an individual choice. Last year I picked One State and Three Dishes, and this year Thali Recipes and next year I shall pick…sh !!..I cannot disclose now. Wait till March. We post three recipes every month, beginning March. So for March, we will post with the alphabets A, B and C. The following month it will be D, E and F, and so on. We end the series in November, with a roundup.

What are Thali Recipes?

Last year we bloggers worked under the theme Thali and Platter Festival. Thali is one of my favourite themes and I enjoy cooking a spread especially traditional. When you make a Thali, the dishes have to complement each other. There are some set combinations and so naturally it becomes a big spread. Since I post one recipe per post, I land up with a big draft section and the A to Z series is the perfect platform to post these recipes from various cuisines.

Why Thali Recipes ?

A Thali makes for the perfect assortment of delicious regional dishes on a single plate and hence you will get different flavours, sweet, salty, sour and at times bitter. Since you have a big variety, you can pick what you want.

India is a diverse country and each state has its special regional cuisine. Every state has its own take on a Thali, so you can explore different cuisines at one stop. Thali Recipes will give you a burst of flavours.

The A to Z Thali recipes is from different cuisines and different courses. As a result, we have a big variety of recipes. In this series, I have posted Drinks, like Limbaca Sarbat, Watermelon Mojito. Fried Snacks like Bhavnagri Mirch ke Bhajiye, Xtra Spicy Mirch ke Pakode, Navtad na Samosa, and many more. For the calorie, cautious there is a long list of Steamed Snacks. I have also posted Main Course Dishes, Side Dishes, Condiments and Desserts. 26 Thali Recipes is just a number, but if you check on the individual Thalis you will see more than 150 recipes! A few alphabets like Q, X and Z are always hard to crack, but my Bahubali Pakora Platter covered up many alphabets. You can call this series an ultimate stop for a variety in cuisine and course.
