Mini Punjabi Thali – Flavors Unbeaten

It’s the first day of 2018 and all we can think of are new goals, new aims and new outlook. Every where there is fun and food, music and dance, love and laughter, culture and traditions…Each and every state of India has it’s own way of celebrations and it reflects via their food most of the time…


Preparing all the traditional delicacies is a must especially amongst the older generations…Chills of winters, Woolen clothes, Anghithis, Sarson and Folk songs… A regular scene in the state of Punjab during the day time…


All the women sit in the gardens while preparing the food with all the love…Sometimes potatoes are being baked in the anghitis and sometimes the brinjal…That earthen aroma and that flavorful taste makes the day worth… πŸ™‚ A traditional Punjabi thali infuses a lot of stuff…But a mini thali also makes a flavorful moment… Hereby, I am presenting my delicious Mini Punjabi Thali which comprises of
