Posted Mar 24 2009 3:39pm
Thali (Hindi: थाली, meaning "plate"; IPA: [t̪ʰɑːliː] ) is an Indian meal with contents varying from one regional cuisine to another. A thali is a selection of different dishes, usually served in small bowls on a round tray. The round tray is generally made with steel with multiple compartments. Typical dishes include rice, dhal, vegetables, chapati, papad, curd (yoghurt), small amounts of chutney or pickle, and a sweet dish to top it.

Indian restaurants typically offer a choice of vegetarian or meat-based thalis.

Depending on the restaurant or the region you are in, the thali consists of delicacies native to that region. The North Indian thali starts out with puris, chapatis (rotis), different vegetarian specialities(curries), usually a sweet, and other miscellaneous items. The South Indian thali comes with appams papad, rice delicacies ( used to serve on banana leaves ) and similar items from the North Indian.
