In the spirit of Republic Day, why not get traditional and replace your cereals and toast with some classic Indian dishes?

As promised, we have some great suggestions for you. Add these three delicious dishes to your breakfast menu right away!

  1. Adai

Get your protein fix for the morning by indulging in these light crepes served with chutney. This traditional South Indian dish is made using a combination of different types of lentils and rice, which makes for a wholesome and filling breakfast.

  1. Dal Vada

Dal vada is a tasty, crispy, savory dumpling that can be made from multiple types of lentils, depending on one’s preference. This dish is crunchy, mildly spicy and goes great with sambar or chutney.

  1. Dosa

This thin crepe is made of a lentil batter and is very popular in South India. Dosa can be made in many variations, adding potatoes, egg or simple spices depending on your preference. If you are not in the mood for a crispy dosa and are looking for something a little heavier, why not try set dosa? This makes for a great breakfast option due to its light and fluffy texture.

These dishes are not only incredibly tasty, but also highly nutritious and filling.
