Bisi Bele Bath Recipe: How To Make Bisi Bele Huli Anna Recipe

Posted By: Staff

Bisi bele bath is a famous Karnataka cuisine recipe that is prepared with rice, lentils, tamarind paste and a whole load of spices added to it. In Kannada, "bisi" means hot, "bele" means lentils and "bath" means rice. This hot lentil rice is also called bisi bele huli anna, since it has a sour taste of the tamarind paste.

The Karnataka-style sambar rice recipe uses a special masala powder that adds a different flavour from the regular sambar rice. This delectable meal is prepared by cooking the rice and vegetables separately. The flavour of the ghee along with the special masala powder makes this dish a finger-licking breakfast meal.

The bisi bele bath recipe is an elaborate process but it does not take too much of your cooking time. The more ghee added to the bhath, enhances the richness of this meal. This rice dish is mostly eaten with boondhi, mixture or raita.
