The cuisine of Karnataka is a potpourri of delectable dishes that represent regional flavors. The culinary delicacies include both vegetarian and non-vegetarian fares. While spicy fish dishes characterize the Mangalorean cuisine, the Kodava delicacies comprise pork curries.
Among the traditional Karnataka delicacies, the masala dosa from Udupi has become a pan-Indian favorite. The North Karnataka region exhibits a penchant for wheat and jowar rottis served with chutneys and spicy curries.
