Breakfast - Subsidiary
...unpaid observations, sometimes not photographic!!
Being a simple egg on toast guy, not for the lack of time but for disinterest in breakfast as a whole, I am fascinated by elaborate breakfasts.  Those, for which, one needs elaborate arrangements and those, which have mouth-watering names such as Appam-chicken stew, Parota-beef-fry, Puttu-kadala-curry, Iddiappam-egg-roast, Avalakki-bath, Shaavigay, Idli-uddina-vada, Nehari-kulcha, Chhole-bhature, Radha-bollobhi-alur-dum, Chicken-thukpa.  These are fascinating names.

Steam off the Puttu machine

While we were in Wayanad, sipping on coffee and waiting to sample the Puttu that steams slowly was a daily ritual.  Everyday we would do a different large breakfast.

My breakfast is a glass of orange juice and a croissant. I'm really not interested in eating a big meal first thing in the morning.

A Brown Sahib household like that of my grandparents inherited the concept of a heavy breakfast from the Raj. I was never interested in a heavy morning meal, which at home used to be kedgeree, meat and half boiled eggs or chapati curry. Nuclear city households like my current one now are moving to a glass of juice and toast, etc. I don't know if this is good, and if we should move away from our elaborate breakfasts.

I know, oh, on Sunday I am going to Koshys for breakfast, I will probably have appams :-). Oh and did I tell you I had lunch at Ente Keralam on Ulsoor Road last week, and...

I'm not a big fan of Koshys' appam and stew. My friend Amol's parents make the best appam and stew (and not just appam and stew) on earth, and I'm not exaggerating a bit. Compared to that, Koshys' appams are shaved wood.

Guess I'll start a Sunday ritual too. There are three Indian restaurants in this town, and they're all equally crappy. I'll cook stuff myself, or I'll go eat Le Petite Cafe's lengthy lazy eat-everything-we-cook Sunday brunch.

I agree. Koshys is not the best. My neighbours, both on the ground and first floors, are from God's own country :-). Their appam-stew are by far the best I have had in Bangalore. But then, I can't go to them all the time, the buggers will start thinking I am hitting on their respective wives :-). Hence, Koshys.
