AVALAKKI / BEATEN RICE / POHA BISIBELE BATH

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES on by : Divya Suresh

Avalakki/beaten rice/poha bisibele bath is a one pot meal normally made for breakfast. Here bisi means hot (garam), bele means lentil (dal) ..ie… Hot lentil bath. Basically bisibele bath is a mixture of mixed vegetables+lentil (Toor or moong)+Rice by adding freshly made (bisibele bath powder) masala powder. But it can also be made with beaten rice &  Millets. Again there are many methods of making besibele bath masala powder. Every individual uses different proportions of spices, though the types of spices used are almost the same. Today I’m going to share how to prepare bisibele bath using beaten rice in my method. Today I made it using Hyacinth beans (avarekayi/Pavta) & french beans.

     Ingredients :

  • Split green gram/moong dal/Hesaru bele – 1 cup
  • Beaten rice/avalakki/poha – 2 cups
  • Mixed vegetables – 2 cups

     To dry roast & powder:

  • Coriander seeds – 2 tbsp
  • Bengal gram – 2 tbsp

  • Cinnamon stick – 1 inch
  • Black pepper – 1/2 tbsp
  • Poppy seeds – 1/2 tbsp

     For tempering :

  • Ghee – 2 tbsp

     PROCEDURE :

  • Wash beaten rice well, drain all the water and keep it aside covered
  • Dry roast all the ingredients under the heading ” to dry roast & powder” and prepare smooth powder in a mixie (I have used water while grinding)
  • Now add washed beaten rice into the cooked dal+vegetable mixture, ground masala powder, tamarind juice and  salt
