( Hot n Tasty Sambar rice )This is a famous rice dish of South India. I thought it must be a difficult recipe to try. Now I learnt this recipe from one of our neighbor aunty from Mangalore. This taste of this rice dish is simply authentic and out of this world!
You can add any vegetables of your choice to Bisibelabath. Since it is cooked with lentils, vegetables and rice, this can be called a one pot meal.

  44. HI,

    AWESOME COLLECTION OF RECIPES; WONDER HOW YOU MANAGE TO PREPARE VARIETIES OF DISHES - OMG!!

    RE : BISIBELEBATH - YOUR PICTURES LOOKS PERFECT WITH THE SEMI-SOLID CONSISTENCY.
    I TOO PREPARE W/OUT SESAME SEEDS, BUT MINE GETS THICK AFTER SOMETIME. I WLD LIKE TO KNOW IF WE NEED TO ADD EXTRA WATER WHILE COOKING RICE+DHALL. IF USING TAMARIND WATER WHAT WILL BE APPROX. QTY?

    THANKS - Raji.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanx for your inspiring feedback Raji. Keep trying the recipes..:)

    For the semi-solid consistency of bisibelabath, you can add hotwater 1/4 cup, while mashing the cooked contents. ( step 9 ). 1 tbsp of thick tamarind extract is enough for the perfect tangy taste of the bisibelabath. Do try n lemme know.
