Mangalore, 17 Mar 2013 (TOI): Breakfast foods vary widely from place to place, but idli and dosa apparently are the all time favorites of Mangaloreans - if the breakfast it at home.


If the breakfast is elsewhere, it can vary widely from New Tajmahal Cafe’s tuppa dosa’’ (thick dosa with generous amounts of ghee) to Janata Deluxe’s idli-thove (dal soup). The breakfast of a manual labourer can be ’padangi’ (boiled horse gram with onions and a little jaggery) to Kadle Usli (boiled Bengal gram, with beaten rice with coconut gratings).


Households go the easy way when it comes to breakfast with the idli or dosa combination with chutney or neer dosa-chutney to neer dosa - bella tharai (grated coconut and jaggery mix filling) breakfast.


DK Hotel Owners Association president Kudpi Jagadeesh Shenoy says, "We have good demand for south Indian favourities like idli, sambar, semige (rice noodles) with dal thove, masala dosa and upma."


Music Director Guru Kiran says: "Idlis, dosa, neer dosa with bella tharai (grated coconut and jaggery mix used as a filling) is my all time favourite. Usually we have a mix of these at home for breakfast, whether it is Mangalore or Bangalore. The accompaniment for this is usual chutney."


Jagotik Konknni Songthotton general secretary Eric Ozario notes: "My favourites are either beaten rice with milk or neer dosa with thick coconut chutney. The beaten rice is not had plain. It is mixed with grated coconut, jaggery, onions and green chillies."
