This traditional spicy rice dish from karnataka is quite addictive – served piping hot topped with lots of ghee and accompanied by fried papads and a cool raita, it is almost impossible to say no to! improvise by adding field beans, peas, kidney beans or other legumes along with the vegetables, for an extra-strong protein boost! victims of this lightning-fast age need not miss out on this delicacy; you can make it using readymade bisi bele bhaat masala instead of grinding the spices.
