A not-so-elaborate, yet so delicious and easy Vegetarian Konkani Thali that satiates not only your taste buds but also your mind and body. This protein-rich thali is surely a party and crowd pleaser. Check out the post for individual dishes with all the details.
Vegetarian Konkani Thali
This week’s blogging marathon theme is “Thali.” By now you would have guessed why I kept posting those Konkani delicacies. I am yet to post one more recipe in the coming weeks.
It is no wonder for a food lover like me to explore and try new cuisines. Konkani cuisine was on my list for quite some time and this time I got a chance to try few dishes, and I fell in love with the recipes and their simplicity. No, I am not exaggerating. :-)
You will notice that I have not use any onion for this thali. I used garlic, but if you skip those, this could be a perfect festive special no-onion no-garlic thali too. Aayis Recipes and Gayathri Pai’s Food Bytes are the two significant blogs that I referred to for most of the recipes.
I won’t call this as a detailed and elaborate thali, but an essential thali that covers the famous Konkani dishes. So here is what I have.
