Bisibele Bath

After Bisibele bath powder,  it is only logical that I put the recipe for BBB. That way I will have the recipe complete, from start to finish. 
Bisibele bath is a signature dish from Karnataka, made out of dal, rice and vegetables. A wholesome one pot meal. 

BBB tastes best when the vegetables are crunchy, dal is properly smashed, the masala is fresh, and you can taste the tadka.. There are many ways one can do this, ranging from very elaborate to very easy..
Which method I follow, depends on the kind of affection I have for my hubby on that particular day, and also the amount of time I have on my hands.. 
I am giving you all the methods I know of..

Do try!

BisiBeleBath Powder

Bisi Bele Bath is a popular Karnataka Dish which needs no introduction. It is made out of vegetables, lentil and rice and is a wholesome meal in itself. You use BBB powder for flavoring, which is a special blend of spices roasted and ground to a fine powder.

The Bisi bele bath powder available in Indian stores is pretty good and serves the purpose very well. But if you want to take it up a notch, try homemade BBB powder. Homemade is always homemade. You can smell and taste the freshness... 

I found this recipe in a FB group. The only change I did was to reduce the red chili quantity, otherwise everything else is the same. The blogger has other authentic Karnataka recipes, which I intend to make sometime soon. Check out her link below.
