The Bohra community eats in a specific way. There is a lot of tradition and history attached to each of our meals.

Home made serves their meals in a thal which stems from the tradition of Bohras eating collectively in a group of 8 persons. A thalis a large round metal plate, around which the family sits helping themselves from the same dish, course by course. It's considered to be a symbol of unity, equality and sharing. A square cloth called safrais placed on the carpet, on which a raised metal or wooden stand called kundaliis placed; the thal is then put on top of the kundali.

On this culinary experience hosted via Seek Sherpa every meal starts and ends with taking a grain of salt which is believed to clear the taste buds and cure many diseases.

The first course is then served, which interestingly is dessert. It is considered auspicious to begin the meal with a sweet dish. In the Bohra language, all desserts are called 'mithaas'.

The next course is the 'kharaas' or the appetizer which usually consists of a chicken, mutton or lamb dish and is accompanied by a salad.

The 'jaman' or the main course is almost always a rice dish. Favorites include kaari chawal and dal chawal palidu. Depending on the dish, jaman is accompanied by either a cold drink or soup. Dry fruits or paan (betel leaves) are a must before the family members taste the salt again to cleanse their tongues.
