#TheTastingForkxNarendraBhawan Thali, or Plat De Bikaner as they call it, at one of the food meditations during my stay at @narendra.bhawan.bikaner
This thali was a part of a course-by-course meal of our first food meditation of the trip- Museum Lunch at the Gold Room of Laxmi Niwas Palace. The room where we dined was painted with intricate real gold work all over the walls and ceiling, hence it was called the Gold Room. A meal that was served at Laxmi Niwas Palace in the 1920s, was made a rendition of and is now served by @narendra.bhawan.bikaner as one of the experiences they offer to people staying with them.
It's a course wise meal with several entrees and mains, and imagine having a thali as a single course. The thali is so huge that a person cannot finish it even if it was all what their lunch comprised of. Kebabs, dal, laal maas, chicken tikka, different types of roti, salad, dhokla, chutney, papad- there are just way too many things in this and each better than the other. The food is prepared with utmost deliciousness and spices that fill your heart with joy. One of my most favourite experiences from the trip!
And of course, what's a meal with Narendra Bhawan without some wine to appreciate the flavours ❤️
