It’s safe to say that our country is one of the most diverse countries in the world. With over 3000 castes and 25,000 sub-castes in India, it makes us extremely rich in culture, heritage and not to mention, the history. But what we’re proud of the most is the insanely delicious food our country has to offer. Every state has such distinct ingredients and flavours. In fact, even their preparations and processes for the same dish are so different. Today, we’ve listed down staple breakfasts of different states in India that prove how diverse we are.
