Sabsige Soppu Bath/Dill Rice Bath

I had a big batch of sabsige soppu(Dill) in the fridge which needed immediate attention. I had recently made rotti with it. And that’s all I know to make with it. I had tried making sabsige saaru once, but was not too sold on the taste. So I took refuge in Google and found one recipe I liked. Generally when I like something, I always make sure to read the comments to see if anybody has tried and tested it. Many did on this one, so I went ahead with it...

This is one healthy bath, I tell you! Tasted good too. It uses freshly ground pulav powder. And there is no onion-garlic in this recipe. Perfect for festivals! It had a tinge of bitterness from the dill leaves, which made it unique compared to other rice baths, which I loved. I would say the taste was close to menthe soppina bath(methi leaves rice bath). 

There is another rice bath that my friend makes with dill. Hopefully I’ll be able post it soon. 

Do try!


Rice - 1 cup
Dill leaves - 1/2 bunch
Peas(I used peas and carrots frozen vegetable bag)

Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp

Lemon juice

Dry Masala

Jeera - 1 tsp
Coriander seeds - 1 tsp
Saunf - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1 big piece
Cloves - 5-7
Bay leaves - 1-2
Black pepper corns - 10-12
Cardamom - 1-2


Cook rice.
Dry grind all the ingredients. 
Make tadka with ghee, jeera. 
Add dry masala powder, sauté.
Add peas(and carrots if adding any) and dill leaves. Add little water (just enough to cook the vegetables). Cover and cook till the vegetables are done. Add cooked rice, salt and mix well. Add lemon juice and mix well. Serve hot with raita.

  • Original recipe cooks everything together in a cooker, I cooked the rice separately and mixed it with the masala. If you are making directly in the cooker, add washed rice after adding vegetables. Add water(2 cups for sona masoori, 1 and 1/2 cup for Basmati) and close the lid. Cook for 2 whistles.
  • I have added little bit of onion in the recipe, but it was not needed. Original recipe doesn’t have onion-garlic.
