When you mix good flavors, the food turns into an orchestra. Food is always an emotion and today it’s fuelled by Bohri Thaal. It is not always the art of adding right spices to make a final dish. There is much more to it, a science behind it, an emotion, a passion and the joy of serving others. With the first bite, when the chef sees the sparkle in your eyes, that’s the fulfillment.
Bohri Thaal – I must say it’s a hula hooped size of celebration😀. The meal begins with a pinch of salt and followed by mithas (sweet) and then Kharas (Savory dish). The round of mithas and kharas continues.
Do you think it stopped here? Oh god, no. Dear diet, things just aren’t looking good for both of us. It’s not me, it’s you. You’re too much work. You’re boring and I can’t stop cheating on you.
Now let’s talk about tradition! A Bohra meal begins by tasting a few grains of salt. And it is only after each guest seated around a big platter has tasted it that the first course is served. Bohra Muslims, who are said to have migrated originally from Yemen to Gujarat, are firm believers in the maxim: “The family that eats together, stays together.” The entire Bohra family dines out of one platter called the ‘thaal’. It can typically accommodate eight people. It is elevated with a ‘tarakti’ (stand) placed on a square piece of cloth called a ‘safra’, laid out on the floor. The thaal should not be left unattended, so it is not placed until at least one person is seated for a meal. (Source: Web)
You know, I have forgotten a lot of things in life. A meal has never been one of them.🤫
