Bisebelabath


Bisibelabath, typical kannadiga food is my all time favourite. I find even an average hotel in bangalore will have fantastic kara baath and bisibelabaath. Every hotel will almost have the same taste but woody's in bangalore is the best.So, since then attempted BBB so many times royally only to end up kichadi.

I got this recipe from Viki's kitchen, I followed the recipe for powder to the dot, though I made a few changes in making rice according to my taste and guess what I have finally got this authentic BBB.. Oh boy I just cant believe this tasted so yummyyyyy.. 

This tastes even better when served with potato chips.
