Curry for Breakfast

I consider myself an adventurous eater -- just ask any of my closest friends who have succumbed to a dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. The fare could include Ethiopian, Thai, Indian, Greek, or Japanese Sushi. But in all my culinary adventures, I can honestly say that I have never had curry for breakfast. That is, until we arrived in India.

Our first breakfast in India was truly East meets West. We had toast with butter and jam, boiled eggs, vayah (a fried dough made of lentil flower, spices and pepper that looks just like a doughnut), dahl, and curry. Noticing that the curry was stocked full of chili peppers, we popped a Tums and said our prayers. Needless to say, we loved every bite of the Indian breakfast and I quickly returned for seconds of vadah and curry. Some people were concerned that the swift introduction of spicy food into our morning diet may be a harsh way to begin our trip, but aside from a little brief stomach rumbling, I didn't experience any repercussions and I've been eating it ever since! :)

That picture of the man pouring looks straight out of National Geographic or a tourist magazine!
