Bisi Bile Bath


I cook only vegetarian dishes on saturdays. Sometime simple dishes ends like rich menu. And this dish is one like that. Just a pappad with bisibilebath taste simple divine. I always prepare the bisibilebath powder at home. If store bought powder is used, instead grind them with the coconut & mix it in the rice. I will be more generous when it comes to addition of ghee in this dish. It taste awesome !!!
