vegetarian. In East India (Orissa, Bengal) the most popular breakfast

curry) or potato curry and also sweets like Rasogula, chenapoda etc.
In South India, the most popular breakfast is an assortment with
several possible main dishes, such as idlis, vadas, dosas and
chapatis. These are most often served with hot sambar and one or
two kinds of chutney items in Tamil Nadu.

breads or unstuffed parathas (they resemble oily milee crepes) with
