Bisebelabath is sambar rice, but an indulgence. It has an elaborate blend of spices, in a very creative proportion that adds luxury and skill within. A native of Karantaka and most associated with the State, with its name itself in Kannada language, it is very hard to resist dish.
Bisebelabath is elaborately known as bise (Hot) bela (lentil, tur dal) huli (tamarind) anna (rice). Like Mysore Pak, it spread from Mysore Palace.
While Sambar rice is prepared with Sambar gravy with vegetables, poured on separately cooked rice, bisebelabath cooks sambar with rice and vegetables in one go.
This is a challenge to the deft homemaker or chef because, cooking something with tamarind is tough and almost impossible or time consuming. Neither vegetables nor dal gets cooked in presence of tamarind. So the execution is definitely a matter of awe.
If you are more bothered about enjoying yourself and least bothered about preparation details, we still have news for you. Ingredients like cardamom and cashew pamper your nose and tongue, alongside with cinnamon and many other spices, whose list and measurements is really tough to handle.
Coriander seeds, Bengal gram dal, sesame seeds, Urad dal, red chillies, cumin seeds, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, poppy seeds, fenugreek seeds, curry leaves, asafetida and roasted coconut are used in bisebelabath powder.
Unless you have a thorough knowledge about the above mentioned items, to the milligram count, it is impossible to bring them together and still make meaning.
