Bulgur Bisi Bele Bath

My most favourite and comforting food after hot piping rasam is this Bisi bele bath, usually i used to prepare this yummy comforting dish using rice and toor dal for a change i tried them making with bulgur and toor dal with mixed veggies for my surprise this bulgur BBB turned out marvellous,delicious,comforting,healthy and absolutely guilt free, everyone at home enjoyed this delicious Bulgur BBB with papads and chips while i enjoyed them with spicy lemon pickle...Of course a healthy food to enjoy either for lunch or for dinner and its completely wholesome and hearty coz of bulgur and dal with plenty of veggies, they tastes absolutely divine when they are served with a dollop of ghee,u can completely skip the ghee if u r a healthnut..Sending to Veggie Hut's Winter Warmers..

Visit Srivalli,Reva,Monika,PJ,Priyavaasu,Jay,Azeema,Ayeesha,Veena,Soumya,Gayathri&Usha for their recipes as we are running blogging marathon together for this whole month.
