Vegetable bhath is a main course dish of the Kannada cuisine fame. Different kinds of mixed rice recipes are prepared during festivals and celebrations; and mixed vegetable bhath is one among them. The vegetable bhath is prepared by mixing cooked rice with vegetables and a whole load of spices.

The Karnataka-style vegetable bhath is usually cooked with onions, but it can be eliminated during the times of prayers and pooja. This finger-licking bath is a simple and easy-to-make recipe and does not require too much hard work. The bhath masala gives it a unique flavour, which certainly leaves us asking for more.

Let us see the step-by-step procedure of the vegetable bhath recipe along with the images and a video.
