Bisibele bath is one of the easiest dishes to make either for breakfast or you can even make it for dinner instead of making rice and sambhar separately. It has the goodness of pulses and lots of vegetables.
Rice – ½ Cup
Tuvar Dal – ½ cup
Veggies – (10 beans, 1 carrot, and 1 potato) - Chopped
Onions – 1 large - sliced
Curry Leaves -6-8
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder – ½ tsp
Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
Bisi Bele Bath Powder – 2 tbsp (i used MTR)
Ghee – 1 tbsp
Tamarind juice – 3 tsp
Water- as needed
Take a pressure cooker. Add rice, tuvar dal, veggies, turmeric pwd, salt and 5-6 cups water.
Pressure cook it for about 6-7 whistles since dal takes longer to cook when compared to rice and veggies.
Once the rice and dal mixture is cooked,put it back on heat and add red chilli powder and bisi bele bath powder to it and mix well. Add tamarind juice. Check for seasoning. Add water if the consistency becomes too thick. Cook for 2 mins. Keep stirring so that the food doesn’t stick at the bottom.
Take another Kadai . Heat ghee and add mustard seeds. Add curry leaves and onions. Saute them well. Now add this mixture to the rice and mix well. Cook for another 2 mins. Take off the heat and garnish it with coriander leaves.
You can serve this with onion-curd raitha and khara boondhi or potato chips
ü You can saute sliced capsicum or some cashews in ghee along with onion and add it to the rice mixture for extra taste.
ü The amount of oil, salt, and spice can be varied according to your taste and eating habits. This measurement works well for me and my family
