Haryanvi Thali is an experience of the real rustic and earthy flavors. The dishes in a Haryanvi Thali are not close to fiery spices of Rajasthan, nor on a grand display of Punjab. It is a harmony of best – a midway between. The thali has simple delicacies, oodles of homemade desi ghee or white butter and of course a large glass of lassi to finish the grand affair.
Popular Haryanvi cuisines include – Kachri ki Sabji, Khichdi, Hara Dhania Cholia, Bajra Aloo ki Roti etc. We often feel, hearing the rowdy Haryanvi’s dialect that perhaps the people here are tough. Ironically people in Haryana are simple, grounded and inevitably attached to their land. And their food reflects that same. Let’s find out the top picks of a Haryanvi Thali.
