How to Make Tasty Bisibela Bath

  • Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a vessel and add all the spices - except asafoetida - and fry on low heat for 2 mins, while stirring constantly.
  • Add asafoetida just before you remove the spices off the heat.
  • Cool and make a coarse powder of the spices.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp ghee in a vessel and fry the onions till transparent.
  • Add the vegetables, salt and a pinch of sugar. Cook them under steam till almost cooked.
  • Now add the cooked rice and dal, and mix well.
  • Add tamarind extract, 2 tsps of the ground masala powder, salt and grated coconut and mix thoroughly.
  • Let it sit, covered, for 40 to 45 minutes on low heat so that the masalas and flavours are well absorbed.
  • Add 3 cups of water and mix well and pressure cook for 3 minutes or one whistle.
  • If you don't have a pressure cooker, cover with a lid and cook on low flame.
  • Generally, the consistency of the rice is like a thick dosa batter.
  • Serve hot with melted ghee, papadam and pickle of your choice.
