Tretha yugam
Kumbakarna – the sleeping giant. He slept six months of an year and the other six months were spent eating. He was in the middle of his sleeping schedule when war broke out. Ravana tried various tactics to wake him up. Thousands of soldiers yelled and screamed, nothing happened. They sounded drums close to his ears, nothing happened. They splashed water and poked him with huge needles, still no movement! Finally they brought in gallons of food and the divine smell was too irresistable to pass off by the oldest foodie known.

Vegetarian Concoctions – the sleeping blog. This blog space has been following the footsteps of the great giant. It dishes out some recipes sporadically and then goes into deep slumber for weeks together. JFIs come and go, nothing happens here. Blog anniversary comes and goes, still nothing happens. A good friend gives it a gentle nudge (too gentle I think…give it one tight KICK!) to no avail. But, the tantalizing aroma of Karnataka cuisine is every foodie’s hope……
