MILLET BISI BELE BATH
MILLET BISI BELE BATH (SAAME | LITTLE)
Millet Bisi Bele Bath or Bisi Bele Huliyanna is a very traditional and delicious food. Later it is a spicy, rice-based dish along with spices, vegetables, and dals. Here in Kannada “Bisi” means Hot, “Bele” means Lentils or Dal, and “Bath” means a mixture of all rice, dals, spices, and vegetables.
Further, it’s from Karnataka India and it is said to originate from Mysore. It is served hot with boondi, potato chips, onion pakora, papad, and salad.
Small-grained warm-weather cereals belonging to grass family. It has got many health benefits. Little millet helps lower cholesterol and improves heart health. Little millet contains slow digestive carbs and dietary fiber that takes a long time for glucose to enter the bloodstream and help control blood sugar levels.
I try to prepare once a week for breakfast as it is very healthy to have as breakfast. You can add all kinds of vegetables. I usually add beans, carrots, capsicum, peas, peanuts, cauliflower, potatoes, chow etc.

Is millet should be soaked before cooking?
It is very important to soak the millet for at least 2 to 4 hours or overnight before cooking. Soaking helps to break down the phytic acid in them, further which makes digestion much easier.
How do you soak and cook millet?
Firstly rinse the millet for 3 to 4 times in water and then drain off the water. Secondly add in fresh water, close the lid and allow it to soak. Once soaked then it’s ready to cook.
How long should millet be soaked before grinding?
If you planning to make idli or dosa, it is always better to soak for at least 4 to 8 hours or overnight. And then we can grind it into a smooth batter.
What is the ratio of water to millet?
I usually add 1 cup of millet, and 3 cups of water and pressure cook it for 3 to 4 whistles.
