Breakfast

Kerala cuisine offers many delicious vegetarian breakfast dishes that are relatively unknown outside the state. A typical Kerala breakfast may include one or more of the following combinations:

Puttu (a cylindrical dish made of rice powder and grated coconut) and kadala (a curry made of chana), idli (fluffy rice pancakes) and sambar, dosa and chutney, Idiyappam (string hoppers - also known as Noolputtu), Paal-Appam, a circular, fluffy, crisp-edged pancake made of rice flour fermented with a small amount of toddy or wine, etc.

 

Idiyapam and Paalappam are accompanied by vegetable stew.

 

Very typically, Appam is a kind of pan cake made of rice flour fermented with a small amount of toddy (fermented sap of the coconut palm) which is circular in shape, rather like a flying saucer, edged with a crisp lacy frill. It is eaten with chicken or vegetable stew. Kanji (rice gruel) and payaru (green gram) are traditional favourites of Keralites.
