Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

India is a huge country, we are a confluence of cultures, a melting pot of unique groups of people who come together to form a country that is beyond diverse. This diversity is visible nowhere more than it is visible in the food we eat. To celebrate the food and the general elections 2019, Ardor 2.1 the bar-grill in CP is serving a humongous 'United India' thali.

The thali has 28 different dishes for the 28 states in India and an additional 'chowkidar' paratha for the added fun and the 29th one.

Posted by Ardor 2.1 on Monday, April 8, 2019

What's more is that the thali weighs 10.5 kilos and has some of the most popular dishes that we find all over the country. Which simply translates to- you cannot eat the thali alone, gather a gang to devour the beast and conquer the food mountain.

The fun thing is that the culture and food of India is so varied that no-one can say that they've tasted every single thing that the motherland has to offer. But with this thali you can at least say that you've had something from each state in the country.

The thali has several dishes from the north-south-east-west and center including Galouti Kebabs from UP, Bati chokha from Bihar, Momos from the Eastern Sisters, Prawn curry from Goa, Dum Biryani from Hyderabad, Dhokla from Gujarat and the classic Maharashtrian tiffin or dabba along with soooo much more.

Not just that, you can also sip on Scottish Mojito, Summer Beer, Strawberry Mojito, Bay Bellini and a lot more to wash down all the deliciousness.

The thali which launched just yesterday, commemorates the general elections that have started across the country and will be conducted in seven phases.

AND depending on when you visit the restaurant during the elections, you will get a complimentary dish from the state where elections are being held. What else can you ask for right? So what are you waiting for, gather all the pro-eaters around you and get the thali already!
