The Kannada Cuisine is one of the oldest surviving cuisines. The varieties of the Karnataka cuisine has influenced the neighboring states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, and Maharashtra. The cuisine also reflects influences from the food habits of many regions and communities from the three neighboring South Indian states, as well as the state of Maharashtra to its north. Karnataka’s love for avarekai has been timeless and well known. Avarekai, which is enjoyed in various forms in saaru, palya, kurma, akki roti, and upma is Bengaluru’s favorite ingredient.
