Vangi Bath (Brinjal Rice)

Being in Karnataka, one must be really knowing the various bath's they prepare. Bisibele Bath, Bagala Bath, Vangi Bath,  Chow Chow Bath et al. Not all of these are made of rice, but very simple and easy to make. If we have the masala powder ready in hand, vangi bath isnt 15 minutes away.
Boiled raw rice - 3 cups
Brinjal - 250 gms
Masala powder - 2 tbsp
Pearl Onions 100 gms
Coriander Leaves - a little
Curry Leaves - a little
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking
For the masala powder
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Channa Dal - handful
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Red Chilies - 7
Black Pepper - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch

Dry roast all the masala powder ingredients and powder coarsely.
Heat oil in a pan, add brinjal and cook till soft. Add pearl onions to it and saute well.
Add the masala powder, salt, coriander leaves and curry leaves. 
Mix rice with this and enjoy with tomato raitha.

Brinjal is very healthy and good for your heart. It also cures insomnia. Eating brinjal gives you good sleep in the night.

Bon Appetit!!
