What is it about Indian breakfasts? Now that I've returned to Ludhiana from Jaipur (Rajasthan), I've also returned to some of my old eating habits. Instead of the parantha (fried bread), a hard boiled egg, and curd (full fat, of course) for breakfast, I'm again eating oatmeal sprinkled with nuts and a little maple syrup. Sometimes I throw in a banana. I guess it should be obvious why I'm hungry a few hours after this breakfast and why the Indian nasta satiates me well into the afternoon. Is this how most Indians stay thin - less snacking and more full on, full fat meals? Do I sense an Indian Women Don't Get Fat in the making?
