This wholesome rice dish from Karnataka can be eaten all by itself. I love this delicious rice and make it very frequently.Bisi means hot, bele means dal so bisibele bath is nothing but hot dal rice. Like obbatu (bobbatlu/puran poli) bisibele bath takes a special place during festivals and weddings. Each family has their own unique recipe for this dish.I make this way.

Ingredients:-

Rice- 2cups
Tuvar dal- 1cup
Mixed vegetables- 1cup(potatoes,carrots,peas)
Onion- 1 chopped
Tamarind paste- 1tbsp
Grated coconut- 1/2cup
Cinnamom- 1''
Coriander seeds- 1tbsp
Urad dal-1tsp
chana dal-1tsp
Dried red chillies- 5
salt to taste
Turmeric powder- 1tsp
Oil- 2tsp
Mustard seeds- 1tsp
Fenugreek seeds-1/2tsp
Water -9 cups



Method:-

Heat oil in a pan. Add Urad dal, Chana dal, coriander seeds,cinnamon,red chillies. Saute for sometime. Keep it aside. Saute grated coconut separately. Grind everything together. Soak rice and dal for sometime. Drain the water.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds. Then add the onions and saute till they are translucent. Then add the cut vegetables and tamarind water. Cook for sometime. Then add the ground paste. And then add the rice and dal and salt. Mix everything properly and cook in the pressure cooker for 3 whistles (well 3 in my cooker). It is a whistle more than you cook for a plain dal. Serve hot with raitha ,pickle, papad and chips.
