Bisi bela bhaat recipe (BBB)- Karnataka special

A popular cuisine of Karnataka, basically a sambar rice variety is a complete meal in itself. I love this delicious rice and make it very frequently. You can serve this with curds or raita and papads. If you start browsing,you will find different versions of making this rice variety. This is how I make.


Notes-

Use MTR bisi bella masala or you can even make it yourself.
