Above is the Punjabi Thali I ordered. Now here below is the Gujarati Thali Robin ordered. Each dish was so vividly flavored with fresh herbs and spices, using high quality produce, it wasn't anything like the great Indian vegetarian restaurants we went to in the South Bay. The yellow cubes with black dots are savory (I know they resemble cake or cornbread) made from chickpea flour. Each Thali plate comes with one of these, called Khaman, which I've never experienced before. Chickpeas & flour named for it are referred to as Channa Dal in Indian cuisine.

Pretty sure that's a yogurt drink up above. Just below it is Gulab Jamun, a very, very sweet traditional Indian desert item you might have encountered, like I have, at Indian buffets.
Some very delectable dals, spiced to perfection.
