Breakfast in India?


Spotted: Goodbody's all-day breakfast bar, Plymouth, UK

My dad once asked an Indian man what they ate for breakfast. His answer? Cornflakes.

Quick facts: India is a nation strongly associated with vegetarianism, an idea propagated by many strands of Hinduism, the main religion of India. Beef and pork are the two meets most commonly banned in Hinduism. 13% of all Indians are Islamic, a religion that prohibits eating pork. This is why most Indian meat dishes are chicken or lamb based.

All told, the odds of finding bacon in an "Indian Breakfast" outside of the UK are incredibly slim.
