I spent a lovely weekend at Pune a place which is about 3 hours drive from the place I live (Mumbai).
Its Ganesh chaturti now , its a Hindu festival , for details you can read here.

I have my aunt staying in Pune whose new House I havent visited and so we felt that this was the best time for us  to visit her and also enjoy the festivities of that place.
This food thali was what I cooked the day before I left for Pune, I wanted it to be simple as I did not have much time as lots of things had to be done and things had to be packed.
Mumbai being a big metro city everything that we need to cook a certain type of meal is always available which is not so in Pune. So my aunt had her list of things that she would like to get and so I had a lot of shopping to be done and so...this above meal
white vatana tonak or wet curry vegetable 
varan or toovar dal
chapati, rice , curds etc....
I will make a separate post for the recipes as and when I get the time...
