Definition

No no, this is not a badly spelt version of 'bath'. Bhath just means 'rice/semolina based dish'. Sometimes spelt as 'bhat'.

Varieties include khara bhath, bisi bele bhath and chowchow bhath (again, this does not have chowmien!). Kesari bhath is a much loved dessert found on most Sagar menus.

Usage

"Give me one plate bisibele bhath. Hmmm ... send off one kesari bhath also"
