Thali Night - Learn to make authentic Indian vegetarian feast with Daal

  • True NOSH 2200 Ontario Street Vancouver, BC, V5T 2X2 Canada (map)

Thaali refers to a metal plate that thali maybe served on. 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. A proper meal should be a perfect balance of all these flavors.

Dishes served in a thali vary from region to region and are usually served in small bowls, called katodies, in India. These katodies are placed along the edge of the round tray. Typical dishes include rice, dahl, vegetable curries, roti, papad, yogurt, pickle and a sweet dessert.
