Bisibelabaath – one of the traditional recipes of Karnataka does involve a lot of work. However, this recipe is an easy version of the same without any difference in taste or flavour. This is one of the OPOS (One Pot One Shot) recipes from www.ramkicooks.blogspot.in. This recipe has to be tried in a 2L cooker and serves 2 people. I will be coming up with my mother’s recipe of the elaborate bisibelabaath soon!!

Toor Dal – 1/2 cup
Grated Coconut – 1/4 cup
Tamarind Paste – 2 tsp
Paruppu Podi – 2 tsp
Ghee – 2 tsp
Garam Masala – 1/2 tsp
Sambar Powder/Bisibelabaath Masala – 1 tsp
Salt – 1 tsp
Chopped Veggies (Carrot,beans) – 1/2 cup
Water – 3.5 cups(vary according to rice used)
1. Mix all ingredients and let it soak for 30 minutes.
2. Pressure cook on medium high flame for 4 whistles.

– Veggies can be omitted or your favorite veggies can be added
– I omitted coconut because of health reasons and it still tasted good. But include if you want the authentic flavor.
