Bisi bele huliyanna. It is also known as Bisi bela bath.

The traditional preparation of this dish is quite elaborate and involves the use of spicy masala, thoor dal, and vegetables. The name Bisi bela bath is a Kannada phrase, which literally means "Hot Lentil Rice", as in Kannada, Bisi means hot, bela means Lentils and bath means a dish made of rice.

Spices like nutmeg, hing, curry leaves and tamarind pulp used in its preparation contribute to the unique flavour and taste of this dish. It is served hot and sometimes eaten along with salad, papad (appalam) or potato chips. This dish is commonly found in restaurants that serve the Udipi Cuisine.
