Bisi Bele Bhath

1 cup Rice (uncooked)
3/4 cup Toor Dal (uncooked)
Beans (about 20) cut into half inch pieces
Large carrot: 1 cut into half inch pieces
Small potato: 1 cut into small cubes
2 tsp Tamarind
Few Cashews(optional)
6 cups Water

1/2 cup grated Copra or Coconut powder
2 tsp Sambar Powder
2 tbsp Coriander Seeds
1" Cinnamon
3-4 Cloves
1 sprig Curry leaves
2 tbsp Oil
2 tbsp Ghee
2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1 sprig Curry Leaves
1 tsp Turmeric
Salt for taste

Fry the masala ingredients except the coconut powder and the sambar powder.
Grind the fried masala ingredients along with coconut powder and sambar masala to a paste with a little water. Set aside.
In a pressure cooker, do the tadka. Add the onion fry for few seconds.
Then fry beans and carrot for a few seconds.
Now add the rice and dal and fry for a few more seconds.
Now put in ground masala, water, tamarind and salt to taste.
Cook in the pressure cooker for 3 whistles. It is a whistle more than when you cook plain dal.
Bisi Bele Bhath is ready! Serve with papad.
