The concept of thali is popular not just in one city, but all over the country. A variety of dals, sabzi, rice, breads and yogurt preparations are added to a huge platter to make a wholesome and fulfilling meal. These thalis come with unlimited refills and are usually tough to finish in one sitting. Adding some more difficulty to this challenge is a restaurant in Chennai which is serving a giant 'Baahubali' thali. The concept was posted on Twitter and it has divided up the internet. Take a look:

Who eats such gigantic thalis? Isn't it a waste of food?— Abhijit Barve (@abhibarve72) July 18, 2023
I think this nonsense should stop at earliest. It is waste of food as either it cannot be finished or people overeat.
Also it was never our culture to have food in this way.— abhi (@hey_its_abhi) July 18, 2023
