    Must-Try Delicious Breakfast Dishes From Assam. Yummy!

    Dishes from Assam or rather Northeast India are a combination of taste and health

    As they say, ‘Eat your breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper’ Assam apparently righteously follows that as this is the most important meal of the day. With lives getting busier, Millenials have almost forgotten the idea of having the first meal of the day in peace and they often tend to skip it. But, the joy of enjoying breakfast at home is unmatched.

    Dishes from Assam or rather Northeast India are a combination of taste and health. The climate and the soil of Assam allow cultivation of rice and hence the state is known for its wide indigenous variety of rice developing an eternal love story with the golden crop. Hence, people living here consume rice as a staple food. So why not kick start the day with fancy cum healthy breakfast options with rice.

    Here we have made a list of the most popular and mouth-watering breakfast options generally made in almost every Assamese household. Here are some of our favourite picks.
