South Indian Breakfast Thali

Today I am posting about a perfect Tamil breakfast platter. This menu comes in marriage functions. In our marriage there was also uthappam. Usually the breakfast is completed with a cup of coffee. Traditionally it is laid out on a banana leaf. First comes kesari and it is followed by medhu vadai, chutneys and idli. Once you finish the idli, ven pongal comes along with sambar and more chutneys. They also serve you sambar vadai and thayir vadai in small paper plates and finally comes the uthappam. I have missed out the uthappam because this itself was very heavy. After finishing the breakfast it is time for coffee and they serve piping hot coffee. After such a heavy breakfast, we skipped our lunch. My daughter loved those mini idlis and she kept on asking for it till the end of the day. 



Today's Menu:
Kesari-Halwa with chiroti rava
Ulunda Vadai-Soft Urad Dhal Vadai
Idli
Thakkali Sambar
Thengai Chutney/ Coconut Chutney
Vengaya Chutney/ Onion Chutney
Thakkali Chutney/ Tomato Chutney
Ven Pongal
Sambar Vadai-Ulunda Vadai dipped in sambar
