Tried and tasted by Nivedita
I am really a very very huge fan of Bisibele Bath. Whenever I visit Bangalore, I eat bisibele bath every day till I am there. Whenever I make at home, it's only me who eats it, as no one likes at home.
But this homemade powder is a hit in my house. I saw my kids and hubby fighting to have it.
Thanks to Seema for sharing this recipe.
Please visit her blog mildlyindian.com and the recipe Bisibele Bath Masala Powder for detailed recipe.
What I have changed is I added Guntur chilly with byadgi ones.
To make bisibele bath,
Soak 1cup rice with one cup of mixed daals(toor dal, yellow moong dal, masoor daal) and handful of groundbuts.
Cut the vegetables almost 2 cups (beans, cauliflower, peas, potato and carrot) and keep ready.
Take the soaked rice, dal and all the vegetables in a cooker. Add the double the water and give two whistles on medium flame.
Cool and open the lid,
Add 2 tbsptbsp tama paste, 1 TSP haldi, salt to taste, red chilli powder 1tsp, 2tsp jaggery and our main ingredient 3tbsp of bisibele bath masala powder.
Mix well and add some more water to get water consistency. Close the lid and cook on low flame for 10 min(remove the weight).
Take one tbsp ghee(must).
Heat it, add 1tsp mustard seeds, cashew nuts, handful of curry leaves, dry red chilly and a pinch of hing.
Add this to the ready rice. Mix well. Serve hot with boondi.
