Other popular south Indian breakfast items are Bisibelebath, Upma, Lemon Rice and Poori. The state of Kerala has some special breakfast items such as appam, idiyappam, palappam .

A typical north Indian breakfast may either be a type of Paratha or Roti served with a vegetable curry, curd and pickles. There are several varieties of parathas available depending on the type of stuffing such as Aloo (potato) Paratha, Paneer (cottage cheese) Paratha, Mooli (radish) Paratha etc. Other popular breakfast items in the north are Poori Bhaji, Poha and Bhindi Bhujia.
