North Indian Thali no. 1

A north Indian or (Bihar Thali) consists of chapati, toover dal, steamed rice, sabji (vegetable curry), chokha (vegetable mashed), dry sabji (stir fry). The dishes are stir fry in mustard oil and even raw mustard oil used in chokha or chutney’s.

Biharies are fond of eating the pungent taste and flavor of mustard oil. They also use homemade pickles, raita, chutney, salad, papad and Tilori.

Vaghar/chhaunk (seasoning) is blend of spices, which is sputtered in hot mustard oil and then added into dal. Ghee is mandatory in dal in the serving bowl.

Phalahari Thali day 6

‘Kathyayini’ is the sixth form of Navdurga, the adolescent virgin goddess ‘Devi kanya kumari’ is said to be the avatar of katyayini.

As usual the phalahari journey will continue, I could still feel the aroma of deliciously paneer makhane (fox nut) korma, yummy kiwi lassi with nutty walnut, banana; and last but not the least kuttu (buck wheat) paratha, which is melt in the mouth.
