Today I am sharing a traditional breakfast recipe from Karnataka. It is called Khara Bath or Masala Bhath. Served traditionally along with kesari bhath. This combo breakfast is must in all weddings. I just love the spicy khara bhath drizzled with Ghee.I love the khara bhath you get in MTR and darshini in Bangalore.
Breakfast should never be skipped as it is the first meal of the day. A proper breakfast will keep you active and energized. I try to make wholesome breakfast on weekdays. We enjoy an elaborate breakfast on weekends as i am off from work.
My humble contribution for 209 #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme #ThindiYenu is this delicious Khara Bhath. This week’s theme was suggested by Aruna who blogs at https://vasusvegkitchen.blogspot.com/ . Check out her amazing blog for some wonderful recipes.
