Sumptuous 100% Veg Jaisalmeri Rajasthani Thali @ Haveli – The Saltee, Salt Lake, Kolkata ☺

Event: Rajasthan Local – Rajasthan Ka Swaad Chakho

Occasion: 18th Anniversary Celebration

Duration: 18 Mar – 18 Apr 2018

Rarely it happens that I visit a diner on my own within a fortnight of attending it’s tasting session.

Recently, I was invited by Haveli to taste the wares of it’s ongoing food festival ‘Rajasthan Local’ and I reviewed about the same at –

The food was really good and authentic. Since, the aforesaid month long food festival has a separate menu for each week, today I went there again with an esteemed guest to try their full fledged Jaisalmeri Thali.

The Thali had a total of 18 items!

Kairi Ro Pani, an apt raw mango based beverage was served as the Welcome Drink. It was apt for the scorching summer.

Kadhi Kachodi Chaat was served as the Starter. Comprising of a deep fried and masala stuffed kachodi, aloo ki kadhi, tamarind chutney, green chutney and bhujia, this Chaat in itself was a mini meal and quite filling. It tasted excellent and reminded me of a couple of popular Banstalla lane based shops of the city who sell almost similar Kadhi Kachodis during breakfast hours.

Then came the beautifully arranged sumptuous Thali, which comprised of the following items –

Clockwise from top: Papad Mangori, Dal, Muthri Ro Churmo, Bafla Ro Baati, Bhunwa Ri Lapsi, Kalmi Vada, Kadhi, Bharwan Aloo Gravy, Mahin Phali Ko Chachito.

Centre: Moth Ka Khakhro and Loya Ki Tikri

All the items were quite well prepared. Moth Ka Khakro was something new to me. It was thin and crackling like the usual Gujrati Khakras, but it had a slightly grey hue and bitter after taste. I paired it with the accompanying sweet and tangy Keri Ki Lungi and the combo tasted nice.

Ker Sangri, Keri Ki Lungi and Lehsoon Ri Chutney were served as condiments. All tasted good.

Roasted Papad was the last serving. It tasted the usual.

Price of Thali: Rs. 650/-

We got 18% discount on the usual price!

This Thali is available for both lunch and dinner. Go and grab it!
