Announcing SWC- Karnataka

After the wonderful round of SWC Maharashtra... its a pleasure for me to announce the theme for this months event of SWC, which is Karnataka- a state of rich culture and tradition... First of a big thanks to Lakshmi for giving me this opportunity to host a event... also thanks to Priyanka as she was the one who suggested me to host an event... We had wonderful SWC (Singapore Womens Community) rounds of Kashmir& Punjab hosted by Lakshmi, then Uttarpradesh hosted by Nupur, Gujrat by Priyanka and now in the last Maharashtra by Neha. Thanks to all these ladies for their in collecting all the recipes and putting wonderful roundups.... And its my turn with SWC- Karnataka

Karnataka's history takes us back to pre-historic times. The earliest find of the Stone Age period in India was an hand axe at Lingasugur in Raichur district. In 1956, the Kannada-speaking areas were grouped along with the princely state of Mysore to form what we now call Karnataka in 1973. Karnataka has the imprint of many dynasties.
While agriculture is the major occupation, the state boasts some of the most significant industrial growth in post independence India. Karnataka is as well known for its silk and sandalwood as for
its high tech industry.
Banglore, the capital goes by many names- the Garden City of India, India's Manhattan and Silicon Valley. One of the most industrialized cities of the country, its pleasant climate makes it the seat of much commercial and cutural enterprise. Rich in Samdalwood, Rosewood and Silk, it has a lot to offer than a day or two of sight seeing. Banglore, is undoubtedly the trump card of Karnata.

Cuisine of Karnataka

The delectable Karnataka cuisine is an inseparable part fo the state. Here, the range of cuisine is quite varied. The ingredients, flavors and the tastes of its cuisines are distinctive and versatile.
