South Indian Breakfast Menu -1 | Breakfast Thali | Breakfast Ideas

With the continuation of thali recipe, today i'm gonna share the typical south indian breakfast thali. Amma make this breakfast thali often and we all love it so much. It's the easiest breakfast thali recipe that you can prepare all the dishes with the single batter.I had already shared the dosa batter recipe before and i used the same batter here for dosa, kara(Savory) paniyaram and karuppati(Sweet) paniyaram.
After grinding the batter, separate the batter into two batches, in one batch of batter, add very little salt which we're gonna use for sweet paniyaram and in another batch,add the required salt,that's for dosa and savory paniyaram.
This breakfast thali includes
Usually, in this breakfast menu, amma includes masala dosa too. But for us ,even this platter makes us so full, so i skip that.But it hardly takes extra 15 mins to prepare the potato masala,so if you prefer, you can include that too.

  • Once finished making sweet paniyaram,start making kara paniyaram.
