Bisi bele bath

Bisi bele bhath (Kannada: ಬಿಸಿ ಬೇಳೆ ಭಾತ್ bisi bēle bhāt) is a rice-based dish with its origins in the state of Karnataka, India. Bisi-bele-bhaath translates to hot lentil rice in the Kannada language. It is also known as Bisi bele huliyanna (Kannada: ಬಿಸಿ ಬೇಳೆ ಹುಳಿ ಅನ್ನ), which means "hot lentil sour rice". The traditional preparation of this dish is quite elaborate and involves the use of spicy masala, toor dal (a type of lentil) and vegetables. Spices like nutmeg and asafoetida, curry leaves and tamarind pulp used in its preparation contribute to the unique flavour and taste of this dish. It is served hot and sometimes eaten along with salad, papad or potato chips. This dish is commonly found in restaurants that serve the Udupi cuisine. The masala used for the dish is available off the shelf.
