SH first question in the morning always starts as "wats for breakfast" n immd follows wat color breakfast is it.. green, yellow, brown, red or black .. Yaa it's very true i use loads of millets n rice varieties which i pick from the Organic stores n they def provide any of the above colors for idli / dosa / adai.

For a change tried appam with kerala red rice and it turned out so soft. SH was awaiting white appams n his face did turn red on seeing these appam. But after tasting it he loved it n appreciated my efforts..
