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.
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.
