That is typical Andhra food, which is our daily home made food.

Hope you got to try the gongura pickle (tangy sorrel leaves)

It probably looks that way. But in terms of quality and distinctness in the taste of dishes, these ones were a cut above. Usually one gets sambhar, rasam, curd, some veggie with grated coconut and some daal. These two weren't just any south indian thaali, every dish was tasty. I even enjoyed the plain yoghurt...

Dania has short shelf-life and becomes limp too quickly, after it is picked, compared to parsley which stays fresh and firm for days, which is the reason it is widely used in garnishes.

.
And I get a free packet of coriander every few weeks from my British colleagues who bought it thinking its parsley ( and do not know what to do with it)..

Parsley and coriander look quite similar anyway.

They do get a good Indian meal once or twice a month though.

I think you just offended the sensibilities of South-Indian Thalis!

Andhra vegetarian food at it's delightful best.

I am drooling!

Crickneck, it's not 'any South Indian thali'. Andhra veggie thali tastes distinctly different from Tamil/Kannada/Malayali (and other regional 'south') veggie thalis.

They may appear the same but taste different and even the ingredients are different.

When I cook dal (or most things for that matter) I tend to get 'Are you single?' kinda questions from women folk.

A simple veggie meal always makes me happy.

We consider ourselves neither simple nor veggie so today's lunch was a real treat at a smart Glasgow restaurant that we could only afford because it was on an internet coupon deal. It was a bit phishy.

Poached salmon for Madame W with haggis balls in oatmeal for me.

Well, the mountain may not be moved to go to Israel, but the cous cous sure as hell came to Glasgow.
