Bisi bele bath powder

Bisi-bele-bath is a Kannada phrase meaning hot lentil rice. This is a Karnataka recipe. You can find this in restaurants that has Udupi cuisine. Amma makes this recipe at home occasionally when my bro and I were kids. Later I learnt some tips from our kannadian family friend and found it very easy and tastier. So this is a combination of Amma’s and Aunty’s version. Everytime aunty makes this and give to us we could find a different unique flavour and her tips helped me to get that flavour. When you keep this powder ready, you can make Bisi-bele -bath easily.


Coriander seeds – 1 cup

Channa dhal – 1/2 cup

Toor dhal – 1/4 cup
