Bisibele bhath is a scrumptious dish prepared with the perfect proportion of rice, toor dal and vegetables. In this bhath, all the ingredients are cooked in a typical way to bring out the authentic bisibele bhath taste of  Karnataka. I have used the famous MTR bisible bhath powder which has the perfect blend of  spices that gives the traditional taste and flavor to the bhath. This is an excellent healthy meal that you can prepare with loads of vegetables.

Cabbage poriyal recipe | Cabbage sabzi

Cabbage poriyal recipe - Sometimes when I am confused thinking what to cook for side dish, suddenly poriyal flashes in my mind. Cabbage is definitely not a favorite vegetable in my house. But when it is made in a proper way by using fresh coconut, it becomes a tasty accompaniment for rotis and sambar rice. Cabbage is a humble vegetable which is available throughout the year. I always store at least half a kilo of cabbage in my fridge to use it when required. Coconut is abundantly used in South Indian cuisine. Especially, fresh coconut adds extra taste to the poriyal and without coconut, it doesn't taste well. Here is easy and quick poriyal recipe.

Hara bhara kabab recipe | How to make hara bhara kabab

Hara bhara kabab recipe with step by step pictures - Hara bhara kabab is one of the most popular North Indian snacks. I am always fascinated in making kababs and tikkis. It is made by using spinach, raw banana and gram flour or besan. This kabab is mildly spiced and shallow fried. This is usually served with mint yogurt chutney, tamarind chutney, dates chutney, tomato ketchup or tomato sauce. This is one of our favorite snacks.I have used raw bananas instead of potatoes for one solid reason. I had half a dozen of bananas lying idle in the fridge and wanting to make proper use of it. The hara bhara kabab was delicious and  it was hard to guess the ingredients. This kabab can be made with boiled potatoes  but it also comes out well with boiled bananas too.You will not find the difference in taste.You can substitute three boiled potatoes in the place of boiled raw bananas. You can use a tbsp of lemon juice instead of amchur powder. For your convenience, the hara bhara kabab mixture can be prepared well in advance and stored in the fridge to make kababs as and when required.
