Vangibath Rice (Eggplant rice)

Brinjal rice 1

Love for rice never ends !!!!  We make different variety rices & among them vangibath rice is quite simple and easy to make with the pre-made spice powder.  Either we can use store bought stuff or freshly homemade powder.  This time I used MTR vangibath powder & it tasted just home made.  Would be the best lunch box menu for all ages.  It taste divine :)

  1. Rice - 1 cup
  2. Oil - 1 tbsp
  3. Channa dal - 1 tsp
  4. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  5. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  6. Onion - 1 small sized
  7. Green chillies - 2 to 3 nos
  8. Curry leaves - 1 tbsp
