My Favorite Thali - Complete Dish

I love thali, means a complete dish , from appetizer to dessert all there. Its on like five course or seven course diner like here, but everything is there, you can enjoy the way you want to eat. if you like sweet then you can have it first or eat your rice first then roti. I was having guest over for diner and he told me that he love some Gujarati food. In my house we both are not that much in to gujju food, back home in my parents house , although we all born and brought up in Gujarat, we never had typical gujju food. Never had in my life dal dhokli or sugar in each and everything like normal household wives do or farsan (snacks) for diner. From his side, his family had gujju food but they love all kind of cuisine and so he also not used to that so I was not keen on making that, so I mix and match and come up with this dish. Hope you all will enjoy it too.
