Bisi Belebath (hot Lentil Rice)
Bisi bele bath is a Kannadiga comfort food made with rice, lentils and veggies. It is a one pot meal, yet it involves a long procedure to make it. If you make your bisi bele bath the procedure becomes even longer. I used store bought bisi bele bath powder for this post and I used the MTR brand which is the best. Bisi means hot and bath is rice in Kannada. This rice is very close to sambar rice in texture and tamarind rice in flavours but it still has a tinge of cinnamon that makes it different. It is mostly had with kara boondi a spicy fritter and a handful of peanuts.
