Celebrating Breakfasts, The Turkish Way

  • Look into your refrigerator and prepare a favourite, easy-to-make egg item. Scrambled eggs, bhurji, boiled eggs, steamed eggs, whatever your heart desires. Or, go the Turkish way and make a tomatoey, and spices-induced bhurji called Menemen.
  • If you eat sausages of any kind, fry them up and add them as well.
  • Cut up some fresh veggies (for example, tomatoes, cucumbers).
  • If you have any pickled items such as sauerkrauts, olives, kimchis, whatever, lay those out as well.
  • Next, the breads — buy or make at least 2 varieties of breads of your choice.
  • Have at least two types of cheeses you like — make paneer at home and buy whatever cheeses you like. If it is Amul that your heart asks for, just do it. Remember, this is a space for yourself and not for the authenticity police.
  • Next up, dips — hummus, chimichurri, chipotle, garlic yoghurt, flavoured olive oil, that spicy schezwan sauce, or that leftover green chutney — the world is your oyster.
  • Life is incomplete without sweets, so also add your favourite chocolates, seasonal fruits, and jams to the spread.
  • And, lastly but not leastly, have a LOT of black tea ready and accessible in a thermos, so people can keep sipping as they desire.
