Rajasthani Thali is a traditional delicious meal where you have an array of traditional Rajasthani dishes served in a platter. I have posted different Rajasthani Thalis earlier but seriously this cuisine is one of our favorites and there are so many dishes that still need to come on the blog.
Today’s Rajasthani Thali is a very special Thali as it has been prepared by a true Rajasthani lady, who happens to be an excellent cook and my very dear friend. We are friends since the very first day of school and fortunately, both are married in the same city. Time and again I have taken her help regarding menus, recipes, but this time I am a step ahead. The whole Thali has been prepared by her and we ate the meal together and what a delicious meal.
