Breakfast Recipes

There is no standard Indian breakfast menu as almost each state in India has different specialities. However, one can broadly classify breakfast varieties in India into 2 types; North Indian and South Indian. The eastern and western parts of India also have individual breakfast items unique to their culture or state.
South Indian breakfast consists of idli, vada and/or dosa coupled with chutney and sambar. Many variations of these dishes exist such as Rava idli, Dahi Vada and Masala Dosa. 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.
In Western India, a Gujarati household may serve Dhoklas, Khakhras or Theplas for breakfast, the most popular of which being Methi Thepla.
In Eastern India, especially in West Bengal and Odisha, luchi-sabji, porota, or even rice is eaten as a breakfast.
Have a wonderful breakfast...
