Avalakki bisibele bath recipe explained with step by step pictures. Avalakki bisi bele bath is a simpler version of bisibele bath. In avalakki bisibele bath beaten rice and green gram dal (mung dal) is used. Avalakki bisi bele bath is a very tasty breakfast recipe from Indian state of Karnataka.

The recipe is very similar to authentic bisi bele bath, which is prepared using rice, toor dal and vegetables. Preparing bisi bele bath is very easy if you have bisi bele bath powder. I have used home made bisi bele bath powder. You can also use store bought bisi bele bath powder.
