Khara Bhath ( Karnataka Special )

Khara Bhath is a famous breakfast dish in Karnataka , India. This dish is loaded with veggies and sambar spices. A great and delicious breakfast made with in no time. This looks similer to our regular sooji upma made in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil nadu or rest of the states in India. Only difference would be addition of Sambar powder in Khara Bhath.

A variation to the upma we make I am sure this version is just as flavorful.

Pavani said...

That whole breakfast plate with upma and chutney looks very delicious Sushma. Adding sambar masala to upma is an interesting touch. I'm going to try that next time I make upma.

Wow! this breakfast is quite flavorsome. I like upma so much. With the addition of sambar powder to make this kharabath, the taste must have enhanced manifolds. Must try it.
