South Indian breakfast recipes are the most healthiest as they provide a well balanced diet full of nutrients giving us a good dose of carbs, proteins and fats despite being light on the stomach as all of them differ in the way they are cooked apart from the ingredients used. A Thali pronounced as “Thaali” is nothing but a lavish spread presented on a single plate like shown in the picture along with accompaniments. You can find at least 2-3 varieties of Breakfast Thali being served in all Restaurants and Hotels and will be given to choose any menu option of your choice to be served. I usually make a lavish breakfast spread only when I have guests at home, so I had never been able to take a snap of a thali meal until now despite wanting to post one for a long time.
An opportunity to do exactly that provided itself with the Anniversary of our group, The Avant Garde Cookies
to celebrate which, we decided to make Thali meals and I chose a mini, simple breakfast thali and made it 10 days ago on one fine Sunday Morning, so that everyone at home could enjoy the breakfast leisurely.
Recipes that are on the plate as you can see are
The Accompaniments are:
I used the gas stove for steaming the idlis, making dosa and rava kesari and electric rice cooker for ven pongal.
The soaking, grinding and the fermenting time for idli-dosa batter and for the medhu vadai will take 15 hours approx., and it took me 2 hours to cook all the items.
With a careful bit of planning and exact execution I’m sure it is very easy to make a Thali.
