Dasaprakash South Indian Restaurant Agra Reviews
South Indian Cuisine in Agra Oct 16, 2011
Don't really know the price here since food was paid for by the tour company. There were lots of locals eating here so it couldn't be that expensive.
Food was served "thali" style. Thalia is the ubiquitous Indian lunch, and every traveller's dream. The thali is named after the dish in which it is traditionally served (usually a metal platter with small, fitted bowls known as katori) and features dry and wet vegetable dishes, roti, poppadoms (daal wafers), dosai (thin crepe filled with potatoes), idly (steamed dumplings made of fermented rice flour), rice, pickle, curd, plain yogurt and a sweet. Not only is it a cheap all-you-can-eat affair, it is a perfectly balanced meal and gives you the opportunity to taste many Indian dishes at the one sitting.
I presume that because we were a group, the metal containers came filled with the different dishes, so it was not an all you can eat affair for us. It was a challenge to determine how to go about eating this thali. I am sure the Indian diners were amused at us Americans mixing all the wrong ingredients together. When all is said and done, it's all going to get mixed up anyways, so what difference does it make.
Everything tasted good except for that sour pickle! It was an interesting experience and a break from all that northern Indian cuisine we have been eating every day.
