his month theme is Karnataka Cuisine hosted by Anisheetu in SWC event which originally started by Dear Lakshmi. I wanted to participate in this event as I have missed SWC:Maharashtra , so I did some googling and settle for Capsicum-Karwar Style. I didn't know what exactly karwar style meant and how the dish look like as there was no picture in the website. But somehow I liked the recipe cause it's simple and very few ingredients.

I did few alteration, first thing, I added eggplant and cauliflower along with capsicum and added 1tps of redchili powder to suite our taste bud. I like the recipe so much, cause for a change there was no onion, green chili and tomato :)...what a relief! And lucky all the other ingredients I had at home.

Mix veggies karwar style was really tasty and I'm going to prepare it few more times with different veggie :-). And Thanks to LG, now I know Karwar it's a place name in Karnataka so the veggie is karwar style. Try this curry and I'm sure everyone will love this as I did too.
