This is a wholesome recipe and has all the tastes. It is spicy by the masala, sweet because of the jaggery that we add, the tamarind pulp gives a sour taste, and rich in flavors due to the cooked veggies and the tempering. It is not necessary that this recipe should be prepared during the festival only it can be made any time. Also you can give onion and garlic tadka to it.
The benefit of making this dish is that you are free to add any vegetables of your choice and it gets pressure cooked and then mashed. So, there is no tantrum for eating any veggies.
You get ready-made Bisi bele bhaat masala but the same masala is very easy to make at home as well. You can prepare the dry masala and store it to use every time you make this recipe.
Serve the Bisi bele bhaat with some roasted papad, raita or curd on the side, and loads of ghee.
