Kathirikai rasavangi recipe

Kathirikai rasavangi recipe, a traditional south Indianbrinjal gravy recipe. Kathirikai rasavangi recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

This is one authentic gravy similar to arachuvitta sambar. The aroma of the freshly ground spices makes it very special. We usually make Kathirikai rasavangi on festival days. In some houses when they do pooja for their family deity at home, they make rasavangi on the lunch menu.

Popularly it is made using brinjals, but you can make this using poosanikai | white pumpkin too. Rasavangi pairs well with rice and also with soft dosais to. There are a lot of small variations followed in the spices in every home. I am following the one which my mom and grandmom make at home.

I have seen in some households they add lemon juice instead of tamarind water.
