hosted by the Lovely Asha from Foodie's Hope. I have also taken the liberty of adapting one of her recipes. It turned out delicious, thanks Asha.
The Regional Cuisine of India (RCI) is a great idea of Laksmi of Veggie Cuisine. It has certainly given me a chance to try dishes I hadn't even heard of. Thank you Laksmi for the idea. Thank you Asha for hosting the Karnataka Cuisine. I now know where it is on the map!
