Idli, Ghuguni and Vada: A Delicious Breakfast from Odisha

What are idli, ghuguni and vada?

Idli, ghuguni, and vada are three separate dishes that are served together to make a wholesome breakfast. Let me explain each one of them briefly:

Idli with Ghuguni and Chutney


Idli is a soft and fluffy steamed cake made from fermented rice and lentil batter. It is a staple food in South India but is also enjoyed in other parts of the country. Idli is low in fat, high in protein, and easy to digest. It can be eaten with various accompaniments such as chutney, sambar, or podi.

Idli with Ghuguni and Chutney


Ghuguni is a spicy and tangy curry made from white peas, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and spices. It is a typical Odia dish that can be eaten as a snack or a main course. Ghuguni is rich in protein, fiber, and antioxidants. It adds a burst of flavor and texture to the idli.



Vada is a crispy and savory deep-fried fritter made from lentil batter. It is similar to the South Indian vada in shape and preparation but differs in taste and ingredients. Vada is made from urad dal (black gram), rice flour, onion, ginger, green chilies, curry leaves, and salt. Vada is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. It adds a contrast of texture and taste to the idli and ghuguni.
