Ultimate Christmas Thali Menu

SNACKS

Venison Samosas s/w Cranberry Chutney

During colonial times, hunting was a favourite sport of the Maharajahs. Those days are past but venison, with its delicious gamey flavor, maintains a great friendship with warming spices star anise, cardamom and cinnamon.

Mushroom and Walnut Samosas s/w Coriander Chutney V DF

As combinations go, mushrooms and walnuts are a mighty pair: smoky, earthy (and irritatingly addictive).

THALIS

Goan Pork Thali GF

Introduced to Goa by the Portuguese in the 15th Century ‘carne de vin alhos’ has become one of India’s most famous exports known as vindaloo. Our version is very mild with tender morsels of pork in a sweet and sour curry sauce.

Pumpkin, Black-Eyed Bean and Coconut Thali V GF DF

The smell of roasted pumpkin and curry leaves sizzling in coconut oil is enough to make anyone want to go to Kerala where this dish, known as ‘olan’, originates.

Thalis are served with subji, radish red cabbage pomegranate salad, kali dal, caramelised red onion rice, apple and mint raita. 

PUDDINGS

Tava Pineapple s/w Cardamom Ice-Cream V GF

Spiced, hot pineapple with exotic cardamom ice cream and a handful of pistachios for good measure.

Chocolate Kheer s/w Almond Chikki V GF

Rice gently cooked in milk and chocolate with just enough spice to warm the spirits topped with a cluster of jaggery-caramelised almonds.


The food and service was excellent and we would certainly go to Thali again.” Jo Sunderland, Outreach and Diversity Producer, BBC Bristol.
