Wheat Rava/Broken Wheat Bisi Bele Bath

Hope many of us would have know about the blogging marathon, yep after running whole month of January  this time we guys are going to run for 7 days of blogging marathon, this time we were more than twenty bloggers to join our hands to make this 7days blogging marathon a big success..Srivalli proposed few themes for this 7 days blogging marathon, my choice went immediately to recipes from other blogs, so that i can finish up atleast 7 of my bookmarked recipes which were sitting since a long..Do check my other fellow bloggers  Azeema,Bhagi , Champa , Sowmya , Gayathri Anand, Gayathri Kumar, Harini , Jay, Minu , Meena , Pavani , Padma , PJ, Priya Mahadevan , PriyaVaasu,Rujuta , Saraswathi , Santosh, Savitha, Shobana, Smitha, Srivalli , Suma, Usha, Veena as we are running blogging marathon for another 6 more days..

After making bisi bele bath with bulgur,here comes one more healthy version of Bisi Bele Bath which i crossed before few months back while going through Latha's A Peek into My Kitchen which is bookmarked immediately..Making out this delicious,healthy, filling dish which is quite famous in Karnataka,needless to say with broken wheat this BBB is definitely a healthier version to enjoy without any guilt, we guys enjoyed having this yummy and wholesome dish for our yesterday's lunch along with spicy potato fry and fried papads, everything together turned out lunch absolutely divine...To give more health benefits to this bisi bele bath i prepared my BBB spice powder with flax seeds and usual spices..Tastewise the addition of flax seeds doesnt change anything,but healthwise needless to say that this dish is truly healthier than the usual BBB also i have completely skipped the cashews she used in the dish....

  40. Thanks for the recipe. But even though I put 7 cups water, the base of the cooker burned the dish and I'm very disappointed. What could be the reason

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Revathi Rangaswamy Hello Revathi, thanks for trying, if ur cooker is new, its may happen, but however if u dont feel comfortable to cook directly in cooker, u can go for a vessel which fits prefectly in ur cooker for cooking, so that u can avoid the burning part. Hope this helps.Also dont forget to wash ur pressure cooker well before cooking..
