Vangi Bhath Recipe | Brinjal Rice Recipe

This Vangi Bhath Recipe is delicious brinjal rice from Karnataka cuisine. It is made with freshly grounded spices cooked with tamarind pulp, brinjal and mixed with rice. This rice as a unique taste from the rest of the rice dishes.

I made this rice for my lunch yesterday and it took hardly 30 minutes to be done. The main taste for the rice comes from roasting the spices on low flame until you get a nice aroma and grinding into a smooth powder.

We have successfully completed 3 weeks of Blogging Marathon. Eight more days left to finish this theme. So far I made 18 Dishes for this Blogging Marathon. I am enjoying this Marathon very much. Sending this Vangi Bhath as my 18th-day recipe to A- Z  Briyanis/Pulao/Khichdi.
