I have made the Bisi bele Bath for 3 person, double the ingredients if you want to make more.

I highly recommend to use the freshly grinded Bisi bele bath powder to get aroma and taste of the authentic touch.

You could use all your favourite veggies.

Add required amount of water to this recipe, because this Recipe should be in a pouring consistency, so add water if required.
