Costlier vegetables made your vegetarian thali dearer by 9 per cent to Rs 27.8 in May, up from Rs 25.5 the same month last year, according to ratings agency CRISIL.

A vegetarian thali has roti, onion, tomato, potato, rice, dal, curd, and salad. A non-vegetarian thali has the same foods but chicken (broiler) replaces dal. 

“The cost of the veg thali increased owing to a surge of 39 per cent, 41 per cent and 43 per cent year-on-year in the prices of tomato, potato and onion, respectively, largely because of the low base of last fiscal,” CRISIL said in its Roti Rice Rate report, released on Thursday.

The prices of rice and pulses also increased by 13 per cent and 21 per cent, respectively.

“Prices of cumin, chilli and vegetable oil fell 37 per cent, 25 per cent and 8 per cent, respectively, preventing a further increase in the cost of the veg thali,” it said.
