Indian Thali

A thali is a selection of different dishes, usually served in small bowls on a round tray. The round tray is generally made with steel with or without multiple compartments.

A thal is a platter and the thali is a way of serving an Indian meal (Some times the plate is also called as Thali).

The thali is a well balanced meal with dishes that include rice, dal, vegetables, breads, yoghurt, chutney, pickle, papad and a sweet dish.

It is a delightful way of dining Indian. The meal is balanced (infact, it could be construed to be a form of a dietary pyramid). The tastes are well rounded from the sublime yogurts to the fiery curries, from the fresh salads to the pickled vegetables, from the sweet to the sour chutneys. The texture too runs the gamut from the crunchy papads to the softness of the rice and the soupy lentils.
Thalis are sometimes referred to by the regional characteristic of the items they have. For example one may encounter Rajasthani thali, Gujarati thali, Maharashtrian thali and many more.
