Presenting a South Indian thali for the first time on the blog.

It’s been sometime I posted anything on the blog, I have been busy in getting my blog updated, at last, it is almost undone and I am so happy with the new look.

A thali is a platter full of all the dishes prepared.It is a complete meal. Today, I present to you a South Indian Thali, this is more prevalent in Karnataka.

I had never thought of taking a picture of thali until the discussion started amongst we friends. Jagruti, Sapana and myself decided to put a thali picture weekly on instagram, just for fun. So, thus this picture.

In the thali are dal with green leaf, rasam, salad, moong stir fry, curd, chapati and rice. This is the usual meal I prepare most days at home. The links to all the dishes are provided.

Dal with green leaf is a tasty accompaniment that pairs both with rice and chapati. It is commonly called as muddipalya in kannada. The goodness of lentil and the nutrients of the green leaf makes it one of the healthy choices for a vegetarian diet, isn’t it?

Rasam is mainly used with hot steamed rice.

Tomato and cucumber salad is an accompaniment with chapati.

Green moong stir fry is liked by all at home and thus make it quite regularly.

The food of south indians is incomplete without curds rice. Mango pickle, thokku and appalams are usually found in all homes.

What is the usual daily food in your home? Do let me know in the comments below.
