Vangi bath recipe, brinjal rice recipe

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.
