The Indian subcontinent is a marvel to behold in and of itself. Diversity is in abundance, especially with almost every single state in this country having their own tradition and culture. Add to that the fact that there are multiple languages spoken within some of those states and it really is something that can leave you in awe. Having said that, there should be no surprise when you hear that the same applies to food habits and cuisines as well. With almost every state having their own taste and their own flavor, India really is a foodie’s paradise!
Foodies from every corner of the globe have indeed fallen in love with our legendary biriyani and that is not news in 2019. However, the biriyani is not the only dish on our menu. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or even egg-centric, there is something for everybody on our menu!
In this blog, we take a look at two of the most complete singular entries on our menu – the Vegetarian & Non-Vegetarian Meals.
The Vegetarian Meals are for the veggies who know first-hand that meals don’t have to all revolve around protein for multifariousness. There is a diversification in just the vegetarian side of our menu that will leave the uninformed baffled. The Thalappakatti Vegetarian Meals offers 2 types of Poriyal, Sambar, Karakulambu, Rasam, Curd, Butter Milk, Chapathi, Steamed Rice, Appalam, Pickle, Phirni (Firni), and last but not least Gobi 65.
The star of the Vegetarian Meals is undoubtedly the Gobi 65. An extraordinary cauliflower (Gobi) dish which can challenge even the Chicken 65 to win over the hearts of both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. A tasty snack of spicy cauliflower florets, it is the perfect accompaniment to go with not only your Meals but also any party or get-together!
Despite the star stealing the show, the heart & soul of the Vegetarian Meals is the Karakulambu. An absolutely delicious gravy accompaniment that goes very well with the Rice as well as the Chapathi – it really does dictate the flow of the entire Meal. Laden with spices, and all the tradition that Thalappakatti stands for, the Karakulambu will set your palette ablaze!
The Non-Vegetarian Meals, on the other hand, is in a league of its own. Foodies everywhere love to gorge themselves on scrumptious meat that is perfectly cooked, and there is an abundance of just that in the Thalappakatti Non-Vegetarian Meals. The star-studded line-up consists of 2 types of Poriyal, Chicken Gravy, Meen Kulambu, Mutton Gravy, Curd, Butter Milk, Chapathi, Steamed Rice, Appalam, Pickle, Phirni (Firni), 2 pieces of Chicken 65, Kola Urundai, Omelet, and of course, Rasam.
We’ve spoken about the star as well as the heart & soul of the Vegetarian Meals, so it’s only fair that we do the same for the Non-Vegetarian Meals.
The star of the Non-Vegetarian Meals is undoubtedly the Kola Urundai (mutton). Fried meatballs may sound like a common theme across various cuisines, but the Thalappakatti Kola Urundai really is a visual and palette-enriching spectacle by itself. The flavors are unique as is, but our Kola Urundai has been taken a step further in order for us to make it our own. It truly is a scrumptious sight to see someone try this for the first time and be mesmerized by the depth of flavor that is present in this delectable dish.
Pushing aside repetition for a moment, the heart & soul of the Non-Vegetarian Meals is the Meen Kulambu. South Indian cuisine incorporates the taste of the 5 states – Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana – 4 of which have a shoreline. The beauty of the diversity involved in fish preparation from each of them is truly an experience unlike any other. To incorporate all of that in one dish? That truly is something you have to actually try to believe!
