1 recipe Bisibele bath powder
1/2 cup toor dal soaked in water for 1 hour
1 cup basmati rice
salt to taste
1 teaspoon tamarind paste(adjust to your taste and the tanginess of the paste used)
6 green chili
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 tablespoon cashew nuts
1 tablespoon ghee
1 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup peas
1 cup corn+bell peppers(optional)
1 tablespoon coconut milk
1.In a pressure cooker place the rice and toor dal with 5 1/2 cups of water and cook for 2 whistles and turn off.
2.In a different pan add the ghee and saute the cashew nuts for 1 minute, then add the carrots and peas and cook until cooked.
3.Add the spice powder and the bell peppers and corn and cook well.
4.Add the tamarind paste and mix once and transfer to the cooked rice and combine well.Adjust spices and salt.Add coconut milk mix once and turn off the stove.
If using regular rice you dont need to soak the dal in advance for 1 hour.30 mins should suffice.
I only needed 3/4 recipe of spice powder so adjust to your taste.
You can also use vegetables like eggplant, potatoes etc, make sure they are cooked before adding to the rice.
Coconut milk is optional but I like it with it.
Serve it with boondi or papad and potato fry
