The idea behind an Indian Thali is to offer all the 6 different flavours of sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent and spicy on one single plate. Eating a Traditional Thali is a great way to know the diverse culture of India. The concept of plating has its origins in the ancient science of Ayurveda where the focus was not just on how the food tasted but regarding food as a step towards achieving wellness of the body and soul.
One similarity found in Thali's throughout India is that they display local, seasonal and also displays the various cooking techniques. The biggest similarity between all Indian Thalis is they are highly seasonal and local and display popular, indigenous cooking techniques.
We include one Thali experience in all our Tours.
