Khara bath recipe with step by step photos – savory, smooth and soft MTR style khara bath made with mix veggies.

khara bath

I prepare this khara bhath recipe at times. This recipe of mtr style khara bath was shared by a reader on the Upma recipe post. following the method mentioned, I have made this recipe at times. When there are no veggies, I just skip them and make the rava bath with onions and tomatoes.

The special ingredient in this khara bhath recipe that gives it a really good flavor is vangi bhath masala. If you do not have vangi bhath masala, you can also add bisi bele bath masala. I have myself added bisi bele bath masala on occasions. If you do not have vangi bath masala powder or bisi bele bath masala powder, then just skip it and add red chilli powder. The rava bhath will still taste good.

You can serve mtr style khara bath with some lemon wedges and coconut chutney. Rava bhath can also be packed in tiffin box.

    1. you can use, but you will need to add more water as broken wheat will rava absorb more water for cooking.

    1. vaishnavi, when vangi bath masala is added, then at that time red chili powder can also be added.

  1. It’s looking so much yummy and tasty! I will definitely going to try this. Thanks for such yummy recipe 🙂
