BISIBELEBATH….like made in marriages/functions

Very glad to say that I could make it. It turned out exactly how it tastes in functions/marriages etc. We all liked it very much. The specialty of this particular dish is….. it does not contain any aromatic spices and in spite of that it tastes heavenly, not even a single aromatic spice is used. It turns out tooooooo yummy. You need to prepare it to believe it ! It is made using regular rice and lentil, but here I have posted the recipe which is made using broken wheat in place of rice. Below mentioned proportion of ingredients serves approximately 6 to 8 people.

 

Ingredients :

  • Dalia/Broken wheat/godhi nuchhu OR Rice  – 1 cup
  • Pigeon pea/toor dal – 1 heaped cup
  • Water – 6 to 7 cups
  • Thick tamarind juice – 3 to 4 tbsp (adjust)
  • Salt to taste
  • French beans – 2 cups
  • Potato – 1 big
  • Fresh green peas – 1 cup
  • Carrot – 2 medium sized
  • Tomato – 3 big

For masala powder :

  • Coriander seeds – 3/4 tbsp
  • Bengal gram – 1 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Black pepper corns – 1/2 tsp
  • Fenugreek seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Whole red chillies – 10 to 12 nos., for color & 4 nos., for spicyness
  • Grated dry coconut – 1/4 cup

  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

For tempering :

  • Ghee – 2 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
  • Cashew nuts – 1/4 cup
  • Curry leaves – few

 

PROCEDURE :

  • Roast all the ingredients under the heading ‘for masala powder’ and grind into a fine powder

  • Make puree using 1&1/2 tomato and cut the remaining 1& 1/2 tomato into cubes
  • Heat 7 cups of water in a pressure cooker, when it is boiling add in rinsed broken wheat & toor dal and allow it to boil again

  • Now add in all the vegetables including tomato cubes and again allow it to boil

  • Now add in salt and when it is boiling add in the masala powder stirred in the water (to avoid lumps formation) and pureed tomato
  • Now add in tamarind juice and stir well again and close the lid and give it one whistle

  

  • Meanwhile prepare tempering using the ingredients under the heading ‘for tempering’

  • Allow it to cool, and add in the prepared tempering

  • Serve hot with any accompaniment
