    Had prepared this gujarati thali, few months back, but thought will share the recipe here....

    Usually Gujarati Thali consists of Dhal, Rice, Chapathis, Vegetables and sweet, Gujarathi Thalis is nourishing and balanced with a subtle taste of sweet in most of the dishes. Here i have prepared a simple Gujrathi Thali.

    Chatpati Bhendi :Tender Lady's finger 7-8, Onion 2(Finely chopped) Ginger and garlic finely chopped 1 tsp, cumin seeds 1/4 tsp,amchoor ~red chili~turmeric~pepper~chaat masala~garam masala~jeera pwd~coriander pwd each 1 tsp, Oil 2 tsp and Salt as per taste.
    Wash the lady's finger and wipe in clean kitchen cloth and cut into 1 inch, heat oil in a pan add cumin seeds, when they splutter add onion, ginger and garlic and cook until onoin turn pink. Now add bhendi and cook for 3-4mins or until bhendi softens, Add all the masala powders and mix gently.
    Add salt just before serving to prevent the bhendis from getting soggy.

    Aamras : Mango(Make sure to use those with less fibres, i used Alphonso) Remove the outer skin and blend the mango with water, if the mango is not very sweet you may add sugar and blend.

    Gujarathi Kadhi : Besan 3 tsp, Buttermilk 2 glass, Sugar 1 tsp, Salt as per taste

    Blend together buttermilk and besan without any lumps and transfer to a pan and cook on a very low flame and keep stirring in between. After 3-4mins add salt and sugar and mix well.
    Heat ghee add all the items mentioned for tempering and saute for 3mins or until done and pour on the kadhi mix gently and boil for 7-8mins on low heat and take off from flame.

    Gujarati Dal : 1 cup Masoor dhal~ 1/4 tsp turmeric ~1/2 tsp grated ginger~ Tamarind water 1/2 cup or tamarind pulp 1/2 tsp~ Small goosberry size jaggery~Salt as per taste
    To Temper : 2 tsp Ghee~1/4 tsp Hing ~ 1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds~ 2 Green chilly (finely chopped) ~ 1 whole red chilly ~ 1 onion (finely chopped) ~ 1 tsp Coriander powder ~ 1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
    Pressure cook dhal with turmeric and ginger and water for 2-3 whistles.
    Heat oil in a pan add all the ingredients mentioned except coriander powder and red chilly powder to temper and saute for 3-4mins or until onion turns pink, now coriander powder and red chilly powder and mix well, now add the cooked dhal and boil for 4-5mins, add salt, jaggery and tamarind pulp pd tamarind water and boil for another 6-8mins on simmer and garnish with coriander leaves.

    Masala Buttermilk : glass buttermilk ~ 1/2 tsp sugar ~ Salt as per taste~ 1/2 tsp Chaat masala
    Blend together all the ingredients and serve chill.


    Chapathi : 1 cup wheat flour~ 1/2 tsp Sugar~ 2 tsp ghee ~ Salt as per taste.
    Knead everything to a soft dough adding warm water little by little and set aside for 30mins to 1 hour. Roll out a roti in circular shape and dust it with the flour and roll out into medium size,cook on hot tava for 2-3mins and turn the other side and cook until brown spots appear, remove from flame apply ghee and serve hot.

    All the above dishes was complete with a cup of steamed rice.

    Nanduben,

    FarsaN kyan chhe? ( where is the snack?) Without a piece of dhokla, mini samosaa, khandvi or some snack Gujju thali is incomplete. In aamras, most of them add add a little milk to tone down the intensity. They don't make chapati, they rather make mini chapati and call it Rotli. This is just for info, hope you don't mind:)

    That looks delicious!

    I'll definitely be giving these a try. I especially like the lady fingers. Personally, I was not fond of this particular vegetable growing up and have only rediscovered it recently.
