Like i mentioned before, our Cookies group is celebrating the anniversary this month. While we all made cakes and cookies for week 1 and week 2 respectively, we did the bravo thing for week 3. Yes, you guessed right. We all decided to put together a thali meal for week 3. I m proud to say that this thali is my first on the blog and surprisingly, i enjoyed putting it together very much. Because we are only two poor souls living under this roof, i decided to keep it simple and make a mini meal. Now, if you ask me what a mini meal is, i d say it is for the fast and the frantic. People who want to eat on the go. People who dont have the time to sit down to eat a proper lunch and yet they wouldnt want to eat granola bars for lunch. Its for those kinds. I usually make the regular sambar, curry and rasam platter for lunch. That s why i picked this mini meal idea. Something that i can eat and Mr.P can enjoy too. While the menu may look extensive and time consuming, its truly not. I made all of it in an hour flat. Its just that it requires some kind of organised cooking. But it really is a treat to indulge in. Either a relaxed lunch or a Sunday brunch, this mini meal works wonders.
