Everyday Gujarati Thali is a quintessential example of what a balanced meal looks like. A right serving of carbohydrates to the right amount of protein and fibre. A typical Gujarati thali offers a nutritious yet delicious and satisfying food with no frills.


Wish I was making my thali every day like this one, I don’t remember when I prepared proper Gujarati thali - ( thali means plate ) that has each and every item is pure Gujarati. In everyday Gujarati thali, you don't serve any farsan (savoury dish) such as Dhokla or Bhajiya OR Mishtaan (Sweets or pudding) such as Shrikhand or Churama Na Ladoo.


Usually, Gujarati thali is served in a stainless steel plate, and bowls, also water or buttermilk ( chaas) served in a steel glass too. Here in my Gujarati thali consisting of a little portion of various Gujarati dishes such as 
  • Gujarati Kadhi ( Chickpea flour and Yogurt soup) recipe here
  • Mug Ni Chutti Daal ( Dried Yellow Moong Daal Sabji ) when there is a Kadhi on the menu Mug ni Daal had to be there too. Recipe coming soon
  • Cabbage and Green Peas Sabji - Recipe here ( I have added green peas instead of potatoes as we are trying to cut down on potatoes)
  • Sambhariya Bhinda ( Dry Okra Sabji ) recipe here.
  • Gajar No Sambharo ( Shredded Carrot Stir-fry) recipe here.
  • Rotli ( wholemeal flour chapatti hence brown in colour) Most of the Brit-Asians use wholemeal flour for making roti. It’s healthy and full of fibre. 
  • Kachumber ( Lightly spiced salad ) 
  • Boondi Nu Raitu ( Gram flout pealrs Raita ) and last but not least mixed vegetable pickle ( which I never touch while I eat a thali like this 🙈) as everything else is enough spicy for me. BTW according to our grandmas actually pickle is good for our metabolism. 
  • Plain boiled rice
  • Roasted papad not in the pics as I totally forgot to put 🙈🙈🙈
In Gujarati thali we serve every dish at the same time, even dessert and farsan ( Savoury snacks) and eat all at the same time. Gujarati thali is full of pure vegetarian and vegan dishes, you can omit dairy products and make suits for vegans too!
Gujarati thali has everything that our body needs for a day. You can get all the necessary nutrition from this thali.
Kadhi and Mug ni Daal provides protein
Sabji, Stir fry and salad lends all the vitamins and minerals
Roti and rice gives you enough carb for the day
Yogurt is full of calcium and protein!
