  1. Researched Cinnamon. There are two kinds – one from Sri Lanka (Ceylon) (Cinnamomum verum or C. zeylanicum) and the other from China, Indonesia and Vietnam (cassia cinnamon). Cassia cinnamon is a different plant and it contains a lot of coumarin, a toxin which can damage kidney, liver and lungs if consumed in quantity. The former is lot more expensive and hence what you buy from stores is mostly the latter cheaper one. Ceylon cinnamon is lighter in color and the layers are thinner like paper and easily crumbles. Knowing potential problem with cassia, my preference is to use ceylon cinnamon even though it is more expensive. It is easily available in the USA, where I live. Hope this helps.

    By the way, our family is eating BBB twice a day and have seen better blood sugar control and we are Type 2 diabetics. Would like to get feed back from other diabetics who tried Bisi Bele Bath. Thanks.






  2. Hi Kannamma,
    can we skip coconut here.? if we are using fresh coconut means will it get spoiled? please help. I wanted to try this rice

  3. Is it necessary to add two different chillies? I don’t find the byadagi chilli here where I live. Can I skip?

    1. yes. you can skip but byadagi gives that dark color that will be missing if you use only the regular chillies.
      Byadagi is not spicy. If you are using regular chillies, use less.

  4. I wonder what a BATH is. I take it the you don’t bathe with this. πŸ˜‰
    Is a BATH a kind of food name, I wonder?? Sorry to be uninformed.
