Who would ever say no to a festival that is all about food?
When it comes to Indian cuisine, thalis are an integral part of our everyday eating habits. The fact of the matter is that any home-cooked meal turns into a thali and every time we have friends over, the tradition of potlucks and platters continues.
Those of us who have spent a lot of time down south know that we have to be extremely selective when looking for a good thali, especially if you're a North Indian is search of something that tastes like home.
But, if you're in the land of beaches and stunning natural beauty that is Goa, or are planning to stay there any time in September, we have a special "thali" treat for you.
Brought to Goa by Novotel, this amazing festival rediscovers the love affair Indians have with thali and our recent obsession with it. Be it for those likes on Instagram or the love of tasting various dishes in one sitting, thalis have become an inseparable part of every popular culture and we're nothing but thankful.
The 'thali from every galli' food festival in Goa promises to take you to flavour-town with 7 different thalis and we're sure every epicure is quaking in their chairs!
At the thali festival you can nosh on various regional delicacies brought in the form of thalis that come from all corners of the country. Ranging from the typical Goan Saraswat thali, Rajasthani thali, 2 Non-vegetarian thalis, Kolhapuri thali to the classic Punjabi Kukad thali and Goan Fish Thali.
So not only do you foodies have a chance to enjoy the classic coastal flavours of Goa, you also have the option to dip your roti in the sea of curries that is the North and Central Indian cuisine.
If you cannot have enough of spicy curries, rice dishes, breads, coastal delicacies, the boldness of flavours and the aromatic blend of beautiful spices coming together, you have to take part in the thali festival. The best part about it is that you can go there any time and have a gala time tasting, nibbling and wolfing down the varying mix that are the thalis offered.
Having the experience in Novotel, you can be sure that you'll receive the best service as well as great quality food, so be sure to book your tickets and get ready to have a thali fiesta.
