Bisi Bele Bath – The taste of Karnataka

Organic Roots brings you the splendid flavours of Karnataka with our ready-to-eat meal box of Bisi Bele Bath. It is a delicious and healthy dish usually prepared with rice, toor dal (lentils) and vegetables, and is flavored with freshly made spice blend. 

This classic dish is a staple in every Kannadiga household, it has a unique flavor and is a bit spicy, a bit tangy and a bit sweet all in one go. In Kannada, “Bisi” means hot, “Bele” means lentil and “Baath” means rice, and hence, the name. The traditional preparation of the dish is very elaborate as the rice, dal and vegetables, all are separately cooked and then mixed together and simmered with the freshly made special spice blend- Bisi Bele Bath masala powder along with jaggery and tamarind extract. Tempering is done towards the end with mustard seeds and curry leaves. The consistency of the Bisi Bele bath is similar to porridge and is a complete and wholesome meal on its own. It can be served at any time of the day and is served hot topped with ghee and some potato chips/ papad or salad if preferred.

Giving it an organic twist, we have introduced a healthier version of Bisi Bele Bath made with Barnyard Millets and organic vegetables.
