BISE BELE HULI ANNA / (BISI BELE BHAATH)



BISI  BELE HULI ANNA.....IS A FAMOUS DISH FROM KARNATAKA....

THE NAME OF THE DISH ITSELF SAYS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT...

BISE -HOT

BELE -DHAL (LENTILS)

HULI -TAMARIND

ANNA - COOKED RICE

SO, WE NOW KNOW IT IS SIMPLE HOT COOKED RICE AND DHAL WITH

A DASH OF TAMARIND ...( OF COURSE IT HAS VEGGIES AND SPICES ROLLED INTO IT...)

  7. ஆஹா! நம்ம சாம்பார் சாதம் தான்.

    வேறு ஏதோ ஒரு அழகான நாகரீகப் பெயரில். காய்கறி தான்களுடன் ஜோராக இருக்குமே!

    சின்ன வெங்காயம் நிறைய போட்டு செய்தால் ஜம்முனு இருக்குமே!

    படத்தில் பார்க்கவே நாக்கில் ஜலம் ஊறுகிறது. ;)))))
