26 Traditional Indian Thalis and Platters, all compiled on one page to make things easy for you guys. These Thalis and Platters have been created to showcase the diversity of Indian Cuisine.

For this Festival we have categorised our Thalis and Platters into five different categories.

1.Everyday Thalis

Where I have shared four Sindhi Thalis. Sindhi’s do not have specific thalis, but we do have combinations which are served together. Everyday Thali’s give you a glimpse of some of the routine food that we make. We do not have many Sindhi Restaurants, but yes with new trends we see a few opening up.

2.Regional Thalis

Here I have chosen different states and presented food cooked specifically to these states. Every region has it’s own version of a particular dish. The spices differ, the cooking style differs and even the utensils differ. Toor Dal in South will be made into a sambar, Dal Tadka in Punjab, Dal Dhokli in Gujarat and so on and so forth. So here I am presenting the traditional cuisine of six different regions of India.

We have a good variety of millet breads too. The South is popular for its rice bread. So for this category I have chosen six Flatbreads and worked my menu around them. Check out these Thalis.

5.Theme based Thalis

The last category for this Thali and Platter Festival are Theme based Thalis. here I have picked Fasting Food as the theme. This is such a wide topic, and I was surprised to read on it. Basically fasting is abstaining from some foods and drinks, sometimes abstaining from a meal. All religions have their own set of rules and like I said it is a very very wide topic and I have just picked some simple Fasting meals here. Some meals to be enjoyed while fasting, some to break the fast. So enjoy these four Thalis which are special to the theme of Fasting.
