Indian Breakfast Foods

Healthy Breakfast Recipes are very important part of your recipe collection. A good breakfast should give you the energy to start the day.

Indian breakfast is varied and consists of steamed , roasted as well as fried foods. The recipes are easy to make. Most are quick recipes which will take you about 15-20 minutes to make. Even that time you can reduce by doing a little planning and preparation the day before.

The north Indian breakfast food differs a little from the south Indian food. Many South Indian recipes are made using rice whereas the north Indians use wheat more. 

South Indian breakfast consists of Idli , Dosa, Uttappa, Vade. All these are surved with chutney, mostly coconut chutney.

Apart from these, Upma - Semolina dish, Aval - Rice Flakes savory dish are also commonly made.

North Indian breakfasts are parathas(flat breads), served with different kinds of pickles or curries.

Many families also have bread toast and jam or marmalade, cereals and such ready items for breakfast. I prefer to make something different everyday. And why not, when I have such a large variety of healthy recipes to choose from.

I am sure you would enjoy these recipes too.
