masala bhathkhara bhath recipe | masala bhath recipe | rava bath recipe | tomato bhath recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. rava bhath or sooji bath or semolina bhath is a easy breakfast recipe prepared similarly like upma. however, this dish is prepared with vegetables like beans, peas and vangi bhath masala powder. this recipe is a very good alternative to for traditional vangi bath recipe prepared with store bought semolina in a jiffy.

i always prepare khara bath recipe whenever, i wish to prepare the chow chow bath recipe. i cannot remember if i have prepared rava vangibath by itself without the kesari bath recipe. this rava bath recipe is usually served with kesari bath, for the sweet and savoury combination. it is huge hit in south indian cosmopolitan city of bangalore. whenever, i go to bangalore i never miss a chance to have this deadly combination in those darshini or sagar hotel.

khara bhath

some people may argue and term this dish as upma or uppittu. however, to get clarified, i would highly recommend to visit the famous brahmin’s coffee bar or mtr hotel in bangalore. i have already share upma recipe. according to me, it is not upma. but khara bath is a variation to upma. anyway, whatever the name is, there is clear difference in the way both are prepared and i love both the variations 🙂

notes:

  • ratio of rava and water is always 1:2. you can add more water only if you are using more oil.
  • adding a tsp of ghee enhances flavour.
  • do not add more vangibhath powder as it dominates the flavour.
  • to increase the spiciness, add more green chilli
  • to make it more tangy, you can also sprinkle some lime juice.
  • if you do not have vangibhath powder, then replace with chilli powder. however, vangibhath powder enhances the flavour.

  1. Hello.. i love Khara bhath, but somehow I can’t get it right..I have a small doubt.. where do I find Bombay rava?? I have tried my luck quite sometimes but rava remains too coarse and doesn’t get soft in texture..

    • you should be able to find bombay rava in any indian grocery store. Bombay rava is made from any variety of wheat which is husked

  2. All the recipes are amazing on your site. I follow them often.
    if rava is dry roasted the stickiness of upma will be less. It will taste and the enhance the texture too.

  3. Excellent. I used to love Rava bath and Kesari bath, when I was studying in Mysore. I still enjoy it in Matunga’s South Indian restaurants. Great.
