As per Wikipedia, the term "Thali" refers to a round platter that is used to serve a variety of foods. It is an Indian style full course meal served on a metal plate. Each and every state and region has its own way of serving food on the thali. Usually, the thali comprises six flavors which include sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent, and spicy on a single plate. As per our Indian food custom and Ayurveda, a proper and balanced meal should be a perfect balance of all these six flavors.

In today's recipe post, we are going to learn how to make a simple and healthy Indian vegetarian thali with step by step procedure. It just takes one hour to make this delicious meal. Every day, I prepare 5 dishes for our lunch which include salad, rice, dal, dry curry/poriyal, and buttermilk.
