Sukhdi / Gud Papdi
Mango Pickle
Sweet Chutney & Green Chutney

Kakdi nu Shaak - A simple and quick cucumber curry lightly spiced, Gujarati style.
Ringan mehi nu shaak - A flavorful curry with eggplants and fenugreek greens. The recipe for this simple preparation can be found here.
Trevti dal - A dal prepared with three different kind of pulses -  pigeon peas, split chickpeas and moong dal with light seasoning.

That is a delicious thali and by no means a simple one. Everything looks tasty and it must have been a feast to the family on the day you served it. When I did thali theme back in Nov, husband wanted me to serve it in a thali just like it is served in restaurants.
