This is a basic and a simple northindian thali..I added a new twist to some recipes..Traditionally northindian thali has some kind of dals, two or three kind of sabzi and some paneer curry, curd, pickle and some vegetables..Everything is served with some roti and rice..Since I served it for dinner, I made this so simple with parathas, two sabzis, curd, pickle and some vegetables..I totally love northindian meals apart from southindian, those are the ones which I go for next..
The Menu in this simple thali is
Ajwain Paratha ( Recipe Soon)
Aloo Bhindi Masala
Sweet Corn Malai Sabzi( Recipe Soon)
Curd seasoned with salt, sugar and chilli powder
Gooseberry Pickle (Recipe Soon)
Vegetables of your choice
I made this for dinner couple of days before and served it to my family and my relatives who came to my house.They loved it a lot..Specially both the sabzis hit the spot..My perippa loved the bhindi masala and totally digged into it. Some people hate Okra,but it is my favorite vegetables , this is the one of the vegetable which taste so good when cooked properly. If you cook right there wont be any sliminess in that. Combining okra and potatoes in a spicy onion tomato sauce makes these veggies so flavourful. These taste great with any roti, but I made it even more special with some ajwain parathas..I hope you love it and let me know what you think..
