#WeekendFeature Yeah, we know it’s a Thursday and India still isn’t UAE where there is four and a half day working week, so then why are we celebrating the weekend already?!

Because, in case, if you wish to experience this elaborate Gujarati Thali at @theleelagandhinagar this weekend (or any other time) then here is your heads up! It needs to be booked two days in advance so that @the_chef_tejas has ample time to source ALL the ingredients that go into bringing this thali together. He is excessively particular about his creation, that there have been instances when he would go source the ingredients personally.

During our recent stay at @theleelagandhinagar , we were treated to this Gujarat (ni) Thali at Citrus Junction. We call it that because Gujarati Thali as a term as been exploited with the introduction to components which are from neighbouring/other states and not Gujarat, intrinsically. This Thali consists of everything that has its roots to various regions of Gujarat.

Our Thali had the following:

PONKH SALAD
MONGRI NI SALAD
DAHI TIKHARI
BAJRA NU KHICHU
PATRA
SANDWICH DHOKLA
VAGHARELO ROTLO
LASANIYA BATEKA
TAMETA VADA
BHARELA MARCHA
KAJU KALI NU SHAK
URAD NI DAL
RAJWADI DHOKLI
LILI DUNGLI NU KHARIYU
DANA PAPDI PATRA NU SHAK
BATEKA NU SHAK
DABKA KADI
STEAM RICE
PONKH KHEER
KESAR PISTA SHRIKHAND
SUKHDI
MASALA BHAKHRI
PHULKA ROTI
POORI
CHAAS SODA

In a friendly banter, we were challenged to finish this with a free Spa session at stake. Guess who returned with sore muscles! Hahaha. There was no way we could finish this (had we starved for two days, maybe then!). But we made the most of it by minimising as much leftovers as we could.

We felt so much pride to seeing a hyper-localised Thali designed to include only the food which was originated in Gujarat. Could be a contemporary version (historically speaking, not fusion-wise) but it can be called ours!

If you plan to strike this Thali, know that it requires a pre-booking (two days in advance) and a monstrous appetite. Please account for a drive at home after this, or seek permission to use the sofa for a cat nap! 😂
