Quick gun murugan bise bele bhat

This is a quick method with the help of ready made masalas. Other wise it is a more elaborate method like the aracha vita sambar. Serves 3-4

Cut into 1" pieces - drumstick, carrots, beans.
Onions - into 4-5 pieces each
even capsicum can be added.

Cook rice ( 1 measure), Tuvar dhal ( 1/4 measure) with extra water ( for these amounts maybe 3 1/2 cups water) till very soft in pressure cooker

Take some oil ( only ghee is generally used)but you can use oil at this stage.
Add seasoning - mustard seeds, couple of red chillies, curry leaves. And saute the vegetables.
Add water
Add MTR Bisebhele powder - 3-4 tbsp ( or add sambar powder, dhania powder, turmeric, pinch garam masala)
When vegetables are almost cooked add tamarind ( 4 tbsp of paste or a lemon size ball of tamarind soaked and pulp extracted)
Cook till raw flavour of tamarind is lost and vegetables are cooked.

Add to the mashed soft rice, dhal mixture.
Mix well

Take large helping of ghee ( that conscience permits)
Add also many cashew nuts ( as above). Once they turn golden brown add to the rice.

Serve hot with papads or chips and a good raitha.
