How to Make Spicy Bisi-Bela Baath

  • Take a little oil in the kadai.
  • Add all the ingredients except coconut and onion.
  • Roast them, and at the very end, add onion and coconut and saute them too.
  • Grind with sufficient water and make a paste. Keep aside.
  • Half cook the toor dal in the pressure cooker and keep it aside.
  • Now add 1 cup of water into the cooker and pour in the tamarind juice. (The tamarind juice should not be more than 1 cup.)
  • When it comes to a boil, add the rice, dal and vegetables. (There should only be 3 cups of water in the cooker - including the water in the toor dal and the tamarind water.)
  • Add the roasted masala and the turmeric powder, and salt to taste.
  • Cook for 3 to 4 whistles, until everything is well cooked.
  • To garnish:
  • Cut the onion into fine pieces.
