Vaangi Baath

Vaangi baath is nothig but a mixture of  sauteed egg plant with masala ,added to the cooked rice.Its a one pot meal and cooked any time ,where we dont have time for elaborate cooking.It is very flavorful and if we have the grinded masala in hand,can be prepared in  a jiffy.Moreover,I will not get any complaints,as egg plants are my H's favourite :)

When we were talking, my friends were telling abt this rice ,this urged me to prepare this .The same masala pwdr can be used to prepare capicum rice also.If we want more spiceness, can also add chilli pwdr.But I was comfortable with the spiceness of the pwdr. Enjoy ur weekend.

Ingredients:


For Grinding:
1.Chana dal                  -        1 tbsp
2.Urad dal                    -        1/2 tbsp
3.Red chillies               -        6
4.Coriander seeds         -        1 tbsp
5.Cumin seeds               -         1/2 tbsp
6.Fenugreek seeds         -         1/4  tsp
7.Peanuts                       -          1 tbsp
8.Sesame seeds             -           1 tbsp
9.Curry leaves               -           few

For the Curry :
1.Onion                        -           1/2
2.Egg plant                   -             2 to 4
3.Gingely oil                -          2 tbsp
4.Cooked rice               -          2 cups

Method;
* Dry roast and grind all the igredients under 'grinding'.
* Take a pan, add oil and temper with mustard seeds and urad dal.
* saute the chopped onion and sprinkle some salt to it.
* When oinion becomes translucent, add the cubed egg plants.
* Saute it well,till the egg plant becomes  90% cooked.
* Now dump in the grinded pwdr and mix it well.
* Add the cooked rice and give it a stir.
* When the rice is well coated with the masala, turn off the heat and garnish with cilantro.
* Serve hot with any raitha.

Note:
Don't use big purple egg plants.It will not taste good compared to small eggplants.
