Do you prefer a sweet or savory breakfast?
Although I’m able to devour a mountain of desserts in the afternoon – four o’clock marking the zenith of the craving – my first meal of the day must be salty: khichdi, uppma, or rice, dal and vegetables. We like hearty breakfasts in our household. A lighter version could consist of a soup or warm salad with a saline pie, chapati or paratha. Sometimes I make potato filled dosa (rice and dal crepes) with coconut chutney or idli (steamed rice and dal cakes), although, idli must always be escorted by a bowl of rasam or sambar (toor-dal broth). Dunking these little white sponges into feisty liquid is a sheer joy and, in my opinion, a proper way to start a day!
The exception that proves the rule is that we had a sweet breakfast today: pancakes, strained yogurt, berries and honey. And, we survived! However, I was tempted to grill zucchini slices and serve the pancakes with herbed yogurt instead of berries and honey.
The pancakes recoup a recipe (chocolate roulade) I had planned for the blog. While dumping the crumbs in the recycling pin yesterday, I realized, it would need some product development. It’s yet to be seen if an eggless cake bent into a roll without breaking. Have any of you done it successfully? Tips are welcomed!
