Vaangi Bhaat- Brinjal Rice

Vangi Bhaat or brinjal rice is stir fried rice recipe which made with cooked rice, brinjal halves and flavorful Indian spices. I love the flavor of brinjal, spices and tamarind in this rice recipe which served with curd or raita. I heard about vaangi bhaat recipe which is very popular in Maharashtra cuisine. That’s the main reason I choose vaangi bhaat recipe for Blogging Marathon under Indian cuisine theme. 

For this recipe I made fresh vaang bhaat masala at home with few ingredients which are easily available in every Indian kitchen. Here is the list of vaangi bhaat masala is urad dal, chana dal, coriander powder, pepper corns, coconut, red chilies. You can store this powder for long time in airtight jar.
