Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

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.
