Bangalore, Apr 23: Based on a new initiative Indic Transliteration on Knol. Indic that will help users publish in five indian languages, Google is launching the Indian Cooking Knol-edge Contest to find the best Indian recipe published in an Indian language.

Knol was primarily introduced to provide a platform for a common man to publish and with Indic Tranliteration content from Indian languages too will play a role on the web.
Chef Sanjeev Kapoor will be judging the recipes recieved in the contest. The contest is open for Indian receipes written in any of the five languages.
