BISIBELABATH RECIPE | HOW TO MAKE BISI BELE BATH

Recipe of bisibelabath with video   

Bisibelabath | Sambar rice is a onepot meal, which my family loves the most. This is made for the singapore foodbloggers potluck party last week. We all had a great fun and we enjoyed it a lot.
This recipe i learnt from my mom ,10 years back and after so many trail and error i am now getting it good. Though the authentic kannadika bisibelabath includes few other spices like cinnamon and star anise. But i don't like the flavour of those spices in the sambar rice. So i ma sharing my own version of bisibelabath. Traditionally kopra | dry coconut is added. You can add fresh coconut too.

  • In a pressure cooker add 2 tblsp of oil (cooking oil + sesame oil) and add mustard seeds.

  25. Hi

    I am doing my version today. The only difference is i am cooking the rice and Dal together. This the the traditional bangalore version. Instead of coconut we add copra, add sundaikkai roasted in ghee. It will add to the taste. Hope u like this version too.
