Brinjal rice |Vangi bath is a good treat for brinjal lovers like me. My mom used to pack this Vangi bath for my lunch box and my friends will finish it off in no time. After marriage,i hardly made this very few times,since my hubby doesn’t prefer brinjals. This time when my neighbor gave me a pack of brinjals ,i decided to make rice of of that and shared the rice with them also. Check out my gutti vengaya koora and pan fried eggplant recipe too.

Hi Jayashree, very nice dish. For what all dishes this vangibath powder can be used ?? Or its used only for brinjal rice ?? ���� since the tatse is too good, am thinking of using this powder in some other dishes too.���� please advice.
You can use this for capsicum rice, dry curries which involves sambar powder and sambar rice too
Thank you so much jayashree..??
