Breakfast - An Introduction
In Yarlpanam, people consume cooked meals three times a day so much so the mothers spend most of their time at home preparing food and preparing ingredients that can be stored. This is the reason, in most Jaffna homes; invariably the kitchen is a very large room and contains storage spaces too.
Although we describe breakfast meals in this page, it does not mean these meals are consumed only at breakfast times. These meals are eaten at lunch and dinner times as well. We have separated them for convenience only.
