The Punjabi breakfast menu consists of heavy food, a tribute to the big boned, robust men of Punjab. While Parathas and pooris dominate the breakfast platter, spicy fries and gravy based dishes of chick peas, cottage cheese and a variety of seasonal veggies are served along with it. A tall glass of yogurt drink both in its sweet as well as the sour form is considered to be essential and Punjabi men are often enraged if they do not find a good dollop of malai or cream floating on top of their lassi. Here are a few essential breakfast dishes from Punjab. Do take a look.
