Indian Thali


Thali  (Hindi/Nepali: थाली, Tamil: தட்டு; meaning “plate”) is an Indian and Nepalese meal made up of a selection of various dishes. It simply means a round platter used to serve food. The idea behind a Thali is to offer all the 6 different flavors of sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent and spicy on one single plate. According to Indian food serving customs, a proper meal should be a perfect balance of all these 6 flavors.

This is a collection of Thali’s from my travels all over the world.
