RE: indian food for breakfast
I was private chef for a family in Paris, the woman was from India and the man was French. Every morning she would have a small saucer of chopped fresh tumeric root and ginger root, along with tea. He would just have tea. Then Felix Rohatyn and his wife came to stay and they asked for.......shhhhh.....EGGS....and coffee! We were all mortified! He is now the US Ambassador to France.....I guess eggs and coffee worked better than tumeric and ginger!
