Vegetarian Gourmet Party For New House Warming Ceremony with Kitchen Of India

Have you remember a s cene from the movie of Jodha Akbar ? Where a typical vegetarian meal was serving at the Royal Court (Darbar) of Akbar with over 100 items . In Tradition this meal is called Thali . Here thali represents a round platter with small bowls of food items. In M ughal period G ourmet T hali was like that.

Hope you got to know that why I had given so many lectures about the Awadhi Cooking. Because today I want share one Awadhi special recipe. It's a simple and easy cooking reci
