BISIBELE BAAT

Bisibele baat is a rice preparation from Karnataka state. I had eaten this when i was small and now i don't remember its taste... the only thing i remember is lots of peanuts in it. My aunt in Bangalore had sent a packet of bisibele baat mix at  that time. When i happened to see this recipe online today, I could not stop myself making this. Here is the recipe of Bisibele Baat.
