Bisibelabath | Sambar Sadham | Pressure Cooker method

Bisibelabath with step step pictures

Easy one pot sambar sadham that too in a pressure cooker. For weekday lunch, after packing lunch for my kids I mostly end up with any leftover from the previous day or simply have my lunch with curd. It was on a day I was left with nothing and I need to make some dish. For a long time I want to make this sambar sadham aka bisibelabath with millets. On that day, I quickly referred some blog and ended up here to make my lunch. I altered the recipe & ingredients according to me and prepared this flavorful rice.
