Today I tried what I understand is the common Andhra breakfast - a dosa.
The dosa is a sort of crispy pancake made from a rice and lentil batter. It is put onto a hotplate much as a crepe is prepared. The difference is that while a crepe comes out soft, the dosa is crisp on one side and rough on the other.
What amazes me about a dosa is that it can harden into interesting shapes. I have had conical ones at a Madras restaurant in London. The chef took the dosa above and served it to me.
My dosa was set into a roll and served with a thin lentil-based soup. Like the food nerd I am I took the photo (probably the other people eating breakfast thought I was off my rocker!).
The chef noticed that I took a photo but then complained that he had not served the condiments (left to right: curry leaf/coriander dip, coconut dip and hot chilli dip). He insisted that I take a new photo...
Much as I like hot, spicy food and have enjoyed trying new things I am not sure I would always like it 3 meals per day. I will enjoy my muesli.
