Bisi Bele Bath

Standard

As I have shared already Bisibelebath is one of my kids all-time favorite rice. I use to prepare sambar sadam at home but thought bisi bele bath resembles the same, but having bisi bele bath is Bangalore, I became a great fan of Bisi bele bath. For last one year I have been preparing bisibelebath frequently at home, but somehow missed to share the recipe.

Mostly I use to prepare bisi bele bath for lunch on week days and pack in lunch box. I prepare bisi bele bath powder once in every month and store it in an air tight container, and use whenever I am need. This also helps in making my cooking faster in weekdays. CLICK HERE for Bisi Bele Bath Masala recipe and now let me share the bisi bele bath recipe with the home made masala…
