A simple thali

View from the open restaurant.


This thali was our simple lunch on the first day of our trip to Harihareswar beach last month. After a long journey in this hot weather (our car's AC must have been quietly moaning for relief) when we reached the place it was already past noon. The resort's restaurant had only this thali available. Reluctantly we said yes to it.
And we had no regrets.
The food was delicious ....hot and simple. The chana had a lot of masala ...just as it should. The dal was simple and so was the aloo jeera. And the best of all ....tandoori roti ...made from wheat atta....and not the usual maida ones that we get everywhere....that go elastic as soon as it goes cold.
The onions were juicy and fresh and the pickle was home made. Never before had I tasted anything so good....(well ....I say this everytime I have a simple meal in the most non-descript places).

More details on the trip to Harihareshwar is here on my travelogue.
