Breakfast meats in Indian food

gumnaam | Jan 16, 2007 12:35 AM

Rustling up an Indian brunch this weekend I've planned:

1. Potato curry
2. Scrambled eggs with chilis, onions, and tomatos
3. Stuffed parathas (from the store I'm sorry to say)
4. A fruit salad with chaat masala

However, am a bit stumped on what meat to cook. None of the usual Indian meats (kebabs, tandoori) seems appropriate for what is, after all, a late breakfast. Fish seems out as well since I don't recall seeing a lot of fish in India (except Goa). Smoked Salmon, the lazy man's staple brunch serving seems inappropriate for India. Ditto for sausages, bacon, et al.

Suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm not as concerned about prep time as I am about getting it right.
