    Brinjal Rice Indian Recipe (Egg plant Rice Indian Recipe)
    Vangi Bath is a popular dish from Karnataka. I have never tried it from Karnataka, the place where I spent a major part of my life. I have tried it when my friends, get them, and started developing a liking towards it.
    The home-made Vangi bath powder gives a very good flavour to the rice.
    For Vangi bath powder:
    1. Urad Dal - 1 tbsp
    2. Chana Dal - 1 tbsp
    3. Coriander seeds - 1 tbsp
    4. Cloves - 1
    5. Cinnamon - 1/2 inch
    6. Cardamom - 1
    7. Fenugreek seeds - 3/4 tbsp
    8. Coconut - 2 tbsp grated
    9. Red Chilli - 5
    Other Ingredients:
    Rice - 1.5 cups
    Brinjal - 5 (cut into cubes)
    Oil - 1 tbsp
    Mustard - 1/2 tsp
    Ural Dal - 1 tsp
    Channa Dal -1 tsp
    Ground nuts - 1 tbsp
    Curry Leaves - 2 sprigs
    Tamarind - 1 gooseberry size (juice extracted)
    Salt - as needed
    Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
    Chilli powder - as needed
    Cooking method:
    1. Dry roast and grind the ingredients in the 'For Vangi bath powder' into a fine powder.
    2. Cook rice and spread it on a tawa to cool down. 
    3. Heat oil in a tawa, and add oil to it.
    4. Once the oil is heated, add the mustard seeds. Once the seeds splutter, add the Urad dal, channa dal and ground nuts, and allow them to fry well.
    5. Add the brinjal and turmeric and mix well with the ingredients. Add chilli powder if the spiciness is not enough. Cover with the lid, and cook till the brinjal becomes cooked, just right. Brinjal shouldnt be overcooked, as it tends to become paste and reduces the taste of the dish.
    6. Now add the tamarind paste, and allow it to cook, till all the water evaporates from the brinjal mix.
    7. Now add the Vangi bath powder, prepared earlier, and mix well.
    8. Now add the rice into the vangi mix, and mix it well.
    9. Vangi Bath is ready !
