Bise Bele Baath Masala Powder

This post is also available in: Hindi

Bise Bele Baath is an iconic rice and dal preparation from Karnataka. However, the version got in local restaurants and eateries is immensely popular due to the unique “outside” food taste that that you can get from freshly ground Masala powder. It’s taste is bit different from the ready made masala you get in the market. Of course, one can get the same taste by making a batch at home and storing it for use as need be. It hardly involves much time, just a little effort.
