Ginny Grant looks to the flavours of Asia for break­fast in­spi­ra­tion

DE­PEND­ING ON THE DAY, break­fast in my house­hold dif­fers widely. On week­days, it’s of­ten about the rit­ual rush, gulp­ing down a tea or cof­fee or a stand-up break­fast on the run – a smoothie, maybe some muesli or toast. Week­ends are a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, with a more leisurely start. I’ve more of a savoury bent, and the snacks from street-side stalls in Asia have al­ways ap­pealed to me. My travel in Asia hasn’t been ex­ten­sive and there are many places on my to-do list, as well as spots I’d like to re­visit. It’s the great hawker stalls in Sin­ga­pore and the food of Penang that have drawn me in in the past – I like a bit of heat to my food and the full flavours on of­fer in these cuisines. The fol­low­ing recipes aren’t tra­di­tional by any stretch, but are some favourite flavour com­bi­na­tions.
