Indian breakfast isn’t something I craved before I discovered Pondicheri. I’m indecisive, so this thali (a selection of small dishes) is perfect for me. I don’t have to choose between potato curry, gingery beef keema curry, uppma (a hot savory cereal made with Texas grits), egg-topped, fried carrot paratha (bread) and cilantro chutney. I get to have them all. pondichericafe.com.
