1. To wake up like a traditional South Indian: try Idli. A typical South Indian breakfast and snack food, idli is a fluffy steamed cake made from fermented rice and black lentils. Although rather mild on its own, idli is usually served with a variety of condiments so you can adjust the taste just the way you like it.
2. If you’re looking to spice up your morning: try Masala Dosa. A tangy thin flatbread provides the base for a breakfast filled with potatoes, rice, and spices to deliver a hearty and crispy variation on the popular dosas that originated in South India. Part crepe, part breakfast burrito - completely delicious!
3. For a savoury twist on a morning treat: try Vada. Although these deep-fried delicacies may take on the size and shape of the classic western donut, they are traditionally filled with ingredients such as lentils, onions, and curry leaves to provide a more nutritious breakfast.
5. For an Asian variation on your morning crepe: try Pesarattu. Similar to those dosas already mentioned, pesarattu is the way to go if you want something a little crispier and less spicy. The South Indians take pride in serving this unique dish with coconut sambar and ginger chutney to hungry travellers from far and wide.
