Hola, all cricket fans out there! Did you hear about the thumping 5 feet long cricket-themed thali of Gujarat? The Motera Thali in Gujarat was humongous and it was launched as part of Cricket Raas, to celebrate India’s amazing performances against England and Australia. The thali was dedicated to our most loved Indian Cricket Team. Served at Courtyard By Mariott, Ahmedabad, the dishes of the thali were named after the players of the team. The restaurant had thrown up a challenge with the thali which required the participant to finish off all the dishes in one hour. Cricketer Parthiv Patel also turned up for the challenge to show his love for the thali.
The Thali Had Dishes Named After Indian Cricketers
The 5 feet long Motera Thali of Gujarat had dishes like Kohli Khaman, Dhoni Khichdi, Harbhajan Handvo, Bhuvaneshwar Bharta, Bouncer Basundi, Shardul Shrikhand, Rohit Aloo Rashila, Bhumra Bhindi Simlamirch, Pandya Patra, Hattrick Gujarati dal and many more. Indians have an unmatched passion for food and cricket. This thali catered to both the favourites. It contained bread, snacks, curries, appetisers, desserts and more, that too in wholesome quantities. Meanwhile, have you tried India’s largest and heaviest veg thali in Delhi?
