Bisi Bele Bath Powder | Best Karnataka Cuisine | Adukale - 200g Pack

Rs. 145.00

A spice blend to prepare Bisi Bele Bath. Bisi Bele Bhath translates to Hot Lentil Rice in the Kannada Language. History has it that this slow cooked aromatic dish was dreamed up in the Mysore palace kitchens 300 years ago. It was a lunch item, enlivened with cashew nuts, tamarind, dried coconut, mustard seeds, cloves, cinnamon and turmeric. At some stage, though, Bisi Bele Bath escaped the palace walls and found its way to the famed vegetarian eateries of Udupi in western Karnataka. From there, a vegetable-laden version spread throughout the state and bisi bele bath turned into a hearty farmer's meal, consumed mid-morning after a stint in the fields.  No other dish from Southern Karnataka can rival Bisi Bele Bhath's fame.
