Karnataka Style Meal

Karnataka Style Meal

oday being the last day for the entry in SWC: Karnataka Event and yes I have manage to post this entry. I break my head so much to what to send for the event as I didn't knew much of karnataka food type but now thanks to the event I know few things :)..I wanted to make so many things but couldn't manage to do it(we always have this kind of excuse rite :P).

So today I thought let's do it. I search few recipes here and there and in the end settled with two blogs and picked recipes from there :)..since I wanted to make few things & after much of brainstorming I settled for full karnataka style meal for lunch. But the slight problem was my little index finger, I have hurt my finger on Thursday, and it became too difficult for me to do anything.

The big problem was washing dal, rice and making tamarind paste but somehow I manage to do it and now my finger is so swollen :-( but in the end of day its worth all the effect ;)

So Lets start the meal with starter or salad Carrot Kosambari from VP's Blog. Usually I do not add channa dal in this carrot salad but I wanted to make it traditional Karnataka style so just followed everything as it is there.

Next comes side dish in the form of banana fry. Here is recipe:


Raw Banana - 2
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tps
Red chilli powder - 1tps
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tps
Coriander powder - 1tps
Salt - to taste
Oil - 3-4 tbs

1. Skin the raw banana and cut in medium size circles.
2. In a pan heat oil add cumin seeds and let it splutters.
3. Add banana and fry for 3-4mins.
4. Add all the rest of ingredients, mix and cook for another 4-5mins or until banana is done.
5. Tasty banana fry is ready to eat.

Next up is Mix Vegetable Huli. I followed everything as it is in this recipe too and it was just yummy; but only thing was I didn't had any rasam powder with me so made rasam powder or as they called it Saarina Pudi too :)
A bit different from normal sambar but it came as welcome surprise to everyone at home and everyone like it too. If anyone want to try this recipe and then go ahead I have thumbs up for this :)

Next is a must rasam in South Indian meal, I have picked  and made Garlic Rasam. It was very tasty. I followed the same recipe here too & this recipes gets double thumbs up from my sis ;)

So meal without any sweet? Now how can that be I have made Kesaribath, simple and delicious recipe is this one.

Here is the full karnataka style meal which was very very yummy and delicious. I'm so glad that I have tried Karnataka style meal :)

Also sending the Mix Veggies Karwar Style for the event too.
