It is a well-known fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It provides your body the much-needed energy to carry on with your day. There has been a sudden surge in healthy breakfast options these recent times since people have become aware of the significance of a good and wholesome breakfast in their daily diet plan. How about waking up to a healthy and delicious breakfast? Sounds good? Then stay with me as I have chalked out some prevalent mouth-watering North Indian breakfast options. A few are healthy and a few are not. Nonetheless, these dishes will guarantee you a balance of nutrition and a delicious after-taste on your tongue with these Indian flavours.
1. Aloo Poori
This yummy meal of poori with spiced potato curry is popular all over India. Each region has its own variation. In Maharashtra, it is called Poori Bhaji and the potato curry is dry as compared to potato gravy served in north India. Granted, wherever you are, this cannot get any more delicious and healthier at the same time. In North India, they love to have pooris with spicy potato curry as well as chole. As this is a deep-fried item, this is not recommended as an everyday option.
2. Aloo Paratha
Parathas are kind of a staple breakfast for north Indians just like the south people have Dosas. North Indians have a variety of stuffed parathas, accompanied by a bowl of fresh curd or sweet lassi. Very healthy and delicious. If you make them with ghee and butter instead of refines oil, this dish is a great start for the day.
3. Besan Cheela
You can imagine this dish as a kind of a pancake made with gram flour and spices instead. Veggies can also be added to it to make it more delicious. Mostly accompanied by coriander chutney. This can’t get any healthier as it is. As this has less oil and a lot of nutrition, this is a preferred breakfast option.
4. Chole Bhature
This does not need any introduction. It is probably one of the most popular breakfasts not only in North India but all over the country. Chole is a spicy curry made with chickpeas, and Bhatura is a fried flatbread made out of Maida. This breakfast is a bit heavy on the stomach. Neither maida nor the deep fry is good for your health and definitely not as a breakfast option.
5. Paneer Bhurji
This is a popular North Indian breakfast made from crumbled paneer, where the cottage cheese or paneer, is scrambled. This is mainly accompanied by chapatis. A few like to have just paneer bhurji. This is a very delicious and healthy breakfast.
6. Dal Kachori
These kachoris are made with spiced moong lentils stuffing. These are mostly accompanied by sweet and sour tamarind chutney or the spicy red chilli garlic chutney. A quick go-to breakfast for most people.
Rotis made with whole wheat flour or Atta are a staple in North India. Usually, dry sabzis are made for breakfast to accompany roti and various forms of parathas. Very healthy and light on the stomach.
This is also one of the most popular choices among people all over the country. Poha is a light and healthy breakfast, and it tastes delicious too. Pressed rice is cooked with some vegetables topped into it, spiced up and seasoned to perfection. A good poha is all you need for an energetic day.
Dhoklas are healthy and taste delicious too. They can be eaten for breakfast or even as a snack during tea time. Mostly accompanied by green chutney. Made of gram flour that is good for your heart and skin, this is a light and nutritious breakfast option.
10. Bread Pakora
How can I forget the king of Sunday breakfast and snacks? Bread Pakora has graced our breakfast tables since time immemorial along and continues to do so on every lazy weekend. Made with gram flour and deep-fried to bright yellow and crispy crunch, very delicious as well as oily. A perfect breakfast once in a while. Again, deep-fried items are not preferred for breakfast.
These are some yummy North Indian breakfast that you can enjoy right now. What are you waiting for? Go try them out and see for yourself!
