To the point: Thalis are some of the most value for money meals you can eat. It is the traditional Indian way of eating a meal in a platter where all the flavours – sweet, salty, sour and spicy are served together. It’s tempting to think of Mumbai as the hub of the Gujarati thali, but there are plenty of varied regional cuisines to choose from, and no, they aren’t all vegetarian!
