7. Southern India
Quora user Jared Zimmerman says that a common South Indian breakfast is idli and sambar, a vegetable stew served with steamed lentil and rice bread. Also popular is dosa, a thin crunchy crepe with a spicy potato filling.
However, a mixture of leftovers from the night before is common, as is soup or cereal.

He adds: “On weekends, Venezuelans might have a larger breakfast, consisting of black beans, savory shredded beef cooked with vegetables, white cheese, perico (eggs scrambled with vegetables), avocado, and an arepa.”
He adds, “Halwa Poori: This is considered as a classic “Sunday” breakfast and is very heavy. It generally consists of ‘poori’, halwa (sweet), and a curry (beans or potato). It is very common to see people in large number gathering at famous places for this Sunday morning breakfast. Often queues are formed outside shops an hour before they start serving.”
