I love the hot/sweet tastes of Gujarati cuisine! Notice the metal dishes. We have some drinking cups with our name etched on the bottom . We were told that Indian families take their own dishes to dinner parties, so having your name on the bottom would insure that you take home the ones you brought.
I showed you the tali served on the roof of the House of MG in old Ahmadabad which is very special with plants, torches and attentive waiters. We celebrated one of the last nights in Ahmadabad there. But there are everyday Gujarati Dining Halls were we ate more regularly. This meal served by a waiter, where you can be served as much as you wish costs $1.80. We always tipped so $2.00!
The dining hall in the video looks fancier than the one where we ate, but the food looks the same. Gujarati food is sweeter than other areas of India. I liked that but professor doesn’t.
Food is eaten by tearing off a piece of nan or roti and scooping it up. Spoons are also on the table for those who prefer it. Most of us got the hang of using our hands. Ahmadabad is “total veg” which was fine with us. I liked not having to worry about eating some unusual body parts, which happened in Italy. I am a food baby!
