BM #68 Day 24 -
I am not sure if everyone agrees but for me little millet is more like cracked rice. I am told these millets are also called 'Vrat ke chawal' in some parts of India. So how can I, a hard core south Indian, not talk about Bisibelebath in this context?
So there it is, this version of BBB (BisiBeleBath) is not any different in taste from the regular BBB. But if you are looking for ways to avoid using rice, this could be your staple :).
Litte Millet 1 cup
Toor Dal 1/2 cup
Mixed Vegetable (Carrot, Potato, Peas, Beans, Drumstick, Lima Beans) 1 1/2 cups
Salt, Red Chili Powder, Turmeric, Green Chili as needed
*Sambar Powder 2 tsp + Vangibath Powder 1 tsp
Tamarind Extract 3 Tbsp (or as needed)
Seasoning (Oil/Ghee 1 Tbsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, Dried Red Chili few, Curry leaves few, Asafotida a pinch, Cashews few)
* It can be substituted with Bisibelebath powder (home made or store bought)
Method Of Preparation -
In a separate wok/kadai, heat ghee and the seasoning ingredients. After the mustard seeds pop and the dals are golden brown, saute the green chilies. Add the cooked dal-millet mixture and mix well.
Sprinkle salt, the masala powder, tamarind extract. Add sufficient water to make the mixture a little runny. Taste and adjust the flavors.
Serve hot with some ghee and papads.
