How to make Chow Chow Bath, Karnataka Special

  1. Method For Kesari: In a vessel boil well the 1 1/2 cup water. In a Non stick pan add 1 tbsp ghee, roast the cashew and raisins. Keep it aside. In the same pan add the rava and roast it on a medium flame for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add the boiled water to the rava carefully, keep the flame on low, cover with a lid. Once the rava gets cooked add the salt, kesari colour and sugar. Mix it well until the kesari becomes thick and starts to leave the sides of the pan.
  3. Turn off the flame. Add the remaining ghee, cardamom powder, cashews and raisins. Mix it well.
  4. Method For Khara Bath: Dry roast the rawa on a medium flame, keep it aside. Dry roast the ingredients given under - For VangiBath powder. Grind to a fine powder. Store this powder in an airtight container, use it whenever needed.
  5. In a Kadai heat oil, ghee and tadka with the ingredients given under - For Seasoning. Now add the chopped ginger and green chillies. Fry it for 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes. Saute it well until it turns mushy.
  6. Add the green peas, saute it for 2 minutes. Add the turmeric powder, salt and water. Bring to a boil. Slowly add the rava. When the rava starts to thicken by absorbing all the water. Add 3 tsp Vangibath powder, mix it and cover with a lid.
  7. Cook it for another 2-3 minutes. Once the rava is cooked well, add the grated coconut, chopped coriander leaves and lemon juice. Mix it well.
  8. Serve hot with coconut chutney.

My Tip:

The Kharabath can also be prepared without vegetables too. Instead of vangibath powder you can replace it with garam masala too.
