Bisi Bele Bath

Bisi Bele Bath is a very rich and aromatic rice delicacy.

Though the main ingredients are rice, dal and some masala items, each of us will have there own version of bisibellabath. And this is my version, half the recipe was adopted from my mom and the other half from my aunt.

BTW, Rushil is still keeping me busy, These are all the recipes I made and clicked before some time. Got a chance to post all those recipes I made and kept without posting.

Ingredients :

Raw rice - 1 cup
Toor dal - 3/4 cup
Water - 5 to 6 cups
Cooked Vegetables - 2 cups (I used carrots, peas, beans, potatoes )
Shallots - ½ cup
Tomatoes - 2 chopped
Tamarind juice - 1 tablespoon or more if needed
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Bisi Bele Bath Masala powder:

Red chillis - 5 to 6
Coriander seeds - 2 tablespoon
Cumin - 1 teaspoon
Chana dal - 2 tablespoon
Fenugreek seeds - ¼ teaspoon
Cinnamon - 2 inch
Cloves - 3
Hing - around 1 teaspoon
Dry coconut powder - 1 tablespoon

Dry roast the above ingredients except coconut. Let is cool and add the coconut and make fine powder. (if making fine powder is not possible, add some water and make a fine paste)

For tadka:

Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Cumin - ½ teaspoon
Red chilli - 1
Bay leaves - 2
Curry leaves
Ghee - ¼ cup

Procedure : 

Cook rice, toor dal and turmeric powder with 5 cups of water. If cooking in pressure cooker, cook until 4 whistles.

In a wide pan heat ghee and add the tadka items. Let the mustard seeds splutter and all other items release aroma. Now add the shallots and fry for few minutes. Next add the tomatoes and cook for a while. Now reduce the flame.

Next add the rice mixture, cooked vegetables and mix well. Add the Ground masala powder or paste. (Paste will mix easily into the rice mixture). Now taste and add needed salt.

Next add the tamarind juice and mix the whole mixture for 5 to 10 minutes or un till all the flavors are combined. Remove and serve with some ghee on top as some papad as a side.
