It can only be managed by making right choice of what you eat for breakfast.I eat a breakfast of steel cut oats porridge(with little milk and no added sugar) and one fried egg.I chose steel cut oats because of it's low glycemic index of 34.Please gain knowledge about glycemic index and glycemic load of each time of food we consume.For the same reason avoid instant and rolled oats which have a high glycemic index value.

What is TIFFAN ?
Are you Diabetic ?
What did you eat for breakfast - write it down with quantity - of each item you eat
then check carbs for each item and estimate total carbs -
Do you take any medicine before break fast ?
Once you figure out carbs - next time try cutting carbs to half and check again
by trial and error - lower your BS - with low carbs
You must be from South - Karnatak and Hydrabad has highest Diabetics now in India
Go to near by city- Indian Grocery store and check Frozen Package of Idli- and see the lable- Find out how many carbs per serving and per Idli --
Your home made idli is much bigger than that package -- I love Idli- used eat six for dinner with two bowls of smbar --but stopped eating Idli completely FIVE years ago- TOOO much carbs - because of rice and lentils
same way fro Dosa - check carbs
If your morning BS - before breakfast is 185--you should skip break fast. Wait for one or two hours - go for a walk or do some light exercise in home- check BS again- eat only after it drops below 150.
Alternately- stop eating IDLI- heavy carb breakfast -e at omlet, or scrambles eggs, or yogurt, cottage cheese, vegetables and cheese etc --
