Bisi Bele Bath Recipe -- How to make Bisi Bele Bath

Hi, Thank you friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make Bisi Bele Bath Recipe.
Bisi bele bath is a Karnataka Cuisine. It was said that some of our ancestoral relatives migrated from Karnataka and also from Maharashtra state to Andhra Pradesh in India. We don't know how far it is true but we have some of Karnataka and Maharashtra recipes in our day to day life. When we were yound and kids, we don't know these are other state recipes, we used to think that they are special to our family. Sometimes we even thought that they are our grandmother's invention which our moms learned from.
Anyway now they are into our lives and not only we our kids also relish them as much we do.
Coming to the recipe, bisi bele bath is a lentil rice which should be served hot only. We need to prepare a powder for this. If the powder is freshly made the rice tastes awesome. We can keep the powder ready to save time, of course that too tastes good.
I like to prepare this with fresh powder only.
