Brinjal Rice / Vangi Bath

Today I thought I should post a recipe on Brinjal (eggplant), the king of vegetables. I think brinjal is one of the few vegetables that is liked by most of them. Even GOD might love this vegetable.
I just love them in any form. I learnt this recipe from one of my friend, I liked it so much because it tastes like biriyani and it is so easy and fast to cook.

(Serves 2)
  • Brinjal – 4 (Sliced)
  • Basmati Rice (90% Cooked) – 2 cups
  • Ginger Garlic Paste – 2 tsp
  • Onion (size:small) – 1 (Sliced)
  • Tomato (size:small) – 1 (chopped)
  • Curry leaves – 2 or 3
  • Garam Masala Powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Chili Powder – 1 tsp (can make it 1 1/2 tsp if you like it spicy)
  • Turmeric Powder – pinch
  • Oil – 4 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Add Oil, Ginger Garlic paste. Fry until the raw smell disappears.
  • Add Garam Masala. Fry it for a 20 seconds.
  • Add Onions, Curry leaves and fry it until the color changes.
  • Add Turmeric powder and blend it nicely with the onions.
  • Add Chili Powder and Salt. Mix it with the onions.
  • Now add tomato and saute until its blanched.
  • Add sliced brinjal.
  • Add 2-3 tbsp of water if the mixture sticks to the pan (optional)
  • Let the brinjal cook until it becomes soft and mushy.
  • On a low flame, add the boiled rice and mix it well.
  • Remove from flame.
Garnish : Add coriander leaves, fried onions.
Serving Suggestion : Serve it hot with Raitha.

I would like to submit this to Fall in love – Brinjal blog event hosted by Sanghi’s food delights.
