After moving to the US, I forgot all about the thali -that shiny steel plate with an array of small bowls overflowing with palate tingling tastes and textures. But six months ago the thali found its way back into my life. I was helping my mother with some shopping. We were in the market looking for some everyday steel utensils and these rectangular steel plates with compartments caught my attention. I just had to buy myself a set even though I knew that given our microwave centric lifestyle these plates would not find much use. And six months later I am happy I bought them, because every once in a while its really nice to set onself a thali and enjoy an unhurried meal. Just like tonight:
I was thinking of making this into a meme but with so many memes going around I am a little sceptical about foisting yet another meme on some unsupecting soul. So if you want to write about your thali and its many fixin's then consider yourself tagged.
* Will post the recipes some other day
