In Gujarat’s Ahmedabad, a high-end hotel came up with a 5-feet long thaali filled with delicious Gujarati dishes. It is called ‘Motera Thali’ and has a cricket-themed menu.
Each of the dishes is named after the players in the Indian cricket team. They include ‘Dhoni Khichdi,’ ‘Kohli Khaman’, ‘Bhuvaneshwar Bharta’, ‘Rohit Aloo Rashila’, ‘Harbhajan Handvo’, ‘Bouncer Basundi’, ‘Bumrah Bhindi Simlamirch’, and the like.
The city’s Courtyard by Marriott hotel posted the photograph on their Instagram page. It also featured former Indian wicketkeeper, Parthiv Patel, posing with the mammoth thali.
A ‘Motera Thali Challenge’ has also been launched to garner the public’s attention. The person who takes it up has to finish it in an hour. Here, he or she can take help from their family and friends. This is a part of the ‘Cricket Raas’ festival to celebrate the cricket team’s brilliant performance in the test series against England. Now, the men in blue are all set to play them in the T20 series that will be played in the newly-renovated Narendra Modi Stadium.
As the hotel’s post went viral on the internet, netizens took to the comments section to express their interest. “Wow! This thali is insane,” one user said while tagging his friends to try it out. The three other comments were filled with fire emoji as well as the heart one.
