Radhika of Tickling Palates has announced a fun way to link up with bloggers with an event called the "Blog hop Wednesday". The aim is to make a lot friends who come with a recipe in tow. Sounds like fun right. I have been paired up this week with Sangeetha from Typical Indian cooking. She has a lot of recipes on the blog and a friendly person too. I chose to make bisibele bath from her blog. This is my husbands favorite recipe. I have made my version of the classic Karnataka special. So do check out the recipe.
Toor Dal-1/2 cup
Mixed vegetables- I used 1 carrot,2 brinjals,4-5 strings of beans)
Lemon sized tamarind-Soaked
Salt to taste
Baby onions-10 nos
oil-for frying onions
Coriander leaves for garnish
For the powder to be fried and powdered
Bengal gram dal-1 tbsp
This method of mine is very simple. I pressure cook the vegetables,rice and dal with salt and turmeric powder. I use six glasses of water to be put in the cooker's container. Once this is done. I take a vessel,extract the tamarind juice,put the spice powder and sambar powder,add the rice and other ingredients to this and let this mixture cook well. Once well done add the pearl onions(which is fried in oil) to this mixture. Garnish with coriander leaves. Add a dollop of ghee while serving. I have not used coconut, if you wish to you can use 1/2 cup grated coconut. Serve this with a raita of your choice.
