Best soul satisfying mid week dinner ( 10mins )
BISI BELE BHAAT
Mark Twain- name the greatest inventor of all time: Accident!!!

Left over rice

Handful of roast cashews and groundnuts
Method- mix dal and rice well (with your hands if possible), add a big dollop of ghee, a glug of tamarind pulp , a handful curry leaves, jaggery, masala pd as required and water to make it the consistency of porridge. Heat till it starts sticking to the pan. Add ghee tadka And serve hot!!!!
Story of how it evolved-
And so it was….. maybe the south Indians in the group may know this but I stumbled upon this wonderful quick soul satisfying, finger licking, mid week bowl of sinful delight purely by accident!!!
Tired and weary after work, with thoughts of a take away in mind, I entered home yesterday and immediately saw 2 bowls of leftover dal and cooked rice, kept on the table by a disapproving dad . Trying to please dads is every girl’s motto in life and so I decided to heat and eat it myself with a bit of chilli powder added just for the kick.
Unknowingly, instead I added a huge spoon of bisi belle bhaath powder and viola, it was just amazing!!! Even hubby kept having extra helpings again and again!!!!
It has even found it’s way into our lunch boxes
Try it and you will definitely be very very happy!!!
