Thali is a big plate made of silver, gold or any other metal. In former times when royal families used to sit down for their meals, all the authentic dishes used to be presented in various katori’s in Thali. Dishes were created by Raj Hakim’s, royal family’s doctor who would keep in mind the health aspects of the food being served. These dishes were used to be cooked by specially trained Khaansama’s (chefs) who were trained to cook food for the Royal Family. The importance of the food being served in gold or Silver is both metals have curative qualities . Gold possesses a high degree of resistance to bacterial colonization while silver has an infection and fungus resistant effect. Maharani Thali is a special 5 course meal served in a silver platter and silver katori’s and comes with a special announcement in Rajputana Style.
