Bisi Bele bath
Bisi Bele bath

Cut all vegetables except onions. If using dry peas, keep them soaked for at least 12 hours before use.

Cook Rice, Toor Dal and Vegetables (including peas, except Onions) separately in a pressure cooker. Add Jaggery and a little Salt to the vegetables before cooking.

Take 1 tsp Ghee in a frying pan and fry onions (vertically cut) until they turn golden brown and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and fry all the bisi belle bath ingredients till they change the colour.

Take grated Coconut and above fried ingredients or the Bisi Bele Bath Powder in a jar and grind into a smooth coconut paste.

Boil Tamarind paste in a kadai for a minute and add the smooth coconut masala paste. Add a little water and boil for 3 minutes.

Then add cooked vegetables, Dal, Rice and Salt as per taste with a little Jaggery and boil for 5 minutes by stirring continuously to avoid the bottom contents from getting burnt. You may add additional water if you feel the contents are a bit thick.

Add fried onions and mix well. Remove from flame.

Take 1 tsp Ghee in pan, add Mustard seeds, Urad Dal, Bengal Gram and cut Red Chillies and fry until the Dal turns golden brown. Add this to the Bisi Bele bath preparation and mix it all well.

Now Bisi Bele baath is ready to serve. The Bisi Bele bath tastes best with fresh Potato Chips or with Khara Boondi.
