    Hi Radha.. I have a quick question…i saw lots of great comments for this recipe..but still i am keen in raising this doubt..ok let me come to the point..generally people wont add tamarind along with dal..the logic behind that is the dal wont get cooked when it gets mixed with tamarind right..but you had mentioned to add tamarind and dal together..r u sure its ok..tomorrow i have a potluck..i am gonna try this out..pls let me know ASAP..Thanks in advance and have a nice day-sandhya

       Hi sandhya..

      Normally, when rice and dhal gets pressure cooked for 4-5 whistles they would get cooked infact smashed, very well..No issues at all.Till today I haven't faced any problem adding tamarind extract along with the dhal.If u r still  bit hesitant u can very well soak dhal and rice for half an hr and then add them.All the best for ur venture.Hope ur pot luck dinner goes well.Pls do let me know the outcome. 

      Cheers

       Hi Veena..

      There is absolutely no problem even if prepared wthout coconut.Guess what, actually I had not stocked up coprai,so landed up using fresh grated coconut.If u r planning to stock the powder then u should use coprai,if u r going to use it up then and there,then fresh coconut can very well be used.All the best and get back with ur results.Hope u like it!!!!!!

      Cheers

           Hi Veena…

          Very happy to know it had come out well..Actually,even I was never a big fan of this dish and to be very frank I never liked it but then once i had it at my friend's place and I liked it a lot.From then on once a week I started to prepare this dish.

          Cheers

    helo,
    one doubt,in the ingredients-1 foto next to coconut is it cumin seeds?but i don see u have mentioned it in the recipe.do we have to add cumin seed?pls suggest.pls dont mind for me asking this silly question.

    1. Radha Arvindh

      Hi Dhanya…

      Oops!!!I am sorry..That shouldn't have been in the picture..I have accidentally placed them while taking the picture..Thank's for making a note of it.Cumin seeds need not be added.Follow as per the Ingredients listed and u need not be sorry.It's good that u made a note of it. 

      Cheers

    Hi Radha,

    I prepared this for our lunch today and it came out very well. This recipe is simple when compared to other recipes, becuase i have tried a lot of complicated recipes for the same. Thanks for your simple and superb recipe.

    Mercy

    1. Radha Arvindh

      Hi Mercy…

      Thank's for ur appreciation Mercy.Good that u had liked the taste.As u said ,I too had tried preparing in many different ways and apparently this particular method turned out to be the best and easy one amongst all.

    HI Radha,

    I am beginner in cooking..

    Just tried Bisi Bele Bath.

    It tasted delicious.

    Thanks for the excellent and simple procedure.

    Expecting more simple cooking menus..

    1. Radha Arvindh

      Hi gokul.. I guess Bisi bele bath would have been a bit complicated recipe(Especially for beginners).Anyway's happy to know that the outcome was good and u liked it.Shall try and post simple recipes as soon as possible.Till then u can have a look at many other recipes posted by Mrs.Mullai..

      Cheers

      Radha Arvindh

    Dear Radha, i tried bisebelebath it really cameout well. First i hesitate to add cloves, cinnamon and bay leaves so i tried with 1 cup of rice and 1/2 cup of dal with all the ingredients. The taste was simply superb. Going to make for a potluck. Thanks for such a nice receipe.

    1. Radha Arvindh

      Hi Shan…

      Garam masala’s(Cloves,cinnamon,bay leaves etc)r normally added to increase the flavour of the dish..It’s basically individual’s preference.But certain dishes requires these stuffs to be added to it, without which u would feel something missing in it..Anyway’s happy to hear that u liked the taste without adding the Garam Masala’s..
      All the very best for ur next preparation.

      Cheers

      Radha Arvindh 

      1. shan

        Radha, with a bit hesitation i added garamasala…so that i prepared with less quantity. I made bisibelebath the way exactly u have mentioned including cloves, cinnamon and bay leaves. for ur prompt reply.

        1. Radha Arvindh

          Hi Shan..

          Ohh U had prepared with the Garam masala's is it..That's good..I was under the impression u had prepared without them(I guess I had not read ur comment properly)..Anyway's Keep trying my recipes and post ur comments and suggestions too..

          Cheers

  14. Latha

    Hi Radha,the recipe look very delicious,I would like to try them,but I only have the store brought thick tamarind pulp,so how many tbsp should I use for this recipe? Thank you.

    1. Radha Arvindh

       Hi Latha..

      I haven't used thick tamarind pulp so far ,so not really sure how sour it would taste.If u r planning to use tomatoes then I guess u can dilute 1tbsp of tamarind pulp with little qunatity of water and use the extract.To be on the safer side try adding little quantity and then if requried u can add the remaining before pressure cooking..

      All the best and let me know how it tasted. 

      Cheers

      Radha Arvindh 

      1. Latha

        Hi Radha, tried this recipe yesterday just the way you suggested, came out well and the taste was superb, my husband and I loved it, thank you so much.

        1. Radha Arvindh

          Hi latha.. At last u gave it a go,I guess..Happy to hear that it turned out well and u liked the taste.All the best for ur next venture and keep checking out for my new postings..

  15. radhika

    hi radha sorry for disturbing u again.one more doubt if the rice thinkens how we can make it watery consistensy. whether we can store and eat next day. taste will be good. please suggest.

    1. Radha Arvindh

       Hi Radhika

      Happy to hear u liked the recipe and it came out well..U can very well store it and have the next day.Add a little quantity of water and salt(If required) ..stir the rice for the salt and water to mix evenly and reheat it and try to consume it immediately after reheating.Basically Bisi bele bath thickens up very soon..Can't help it..But adding water and reheating would help to some extent..Try it out. 

      Cheers

        For preparing for just 2 , can i cut down all the ingredients listed by half.

        1. Radha Arvindh

          Hi visitor…

          Thank’s for ur compliments..S u can very well cut down the ingredients to half the quantity and water would be 3 cups for(1/2 cup of rice and 1/4 cup of dhal)..Make sure that u cut down the veggies accordingly too.

          All the best and let me know how it turned out.If u don’t mind,can I know who is this…???
