Vangi Bhaat

Vangi Bhaat or Egg plant rice is probably very popular in Maharashtra and Karnataka especially in Bengaluru !! Mostly the long green or purple  brinjal is used in this rice . you can also use any other veriety if you dont get this variety. i've used home made masala powder .For the recipe of vangi  bhaat powder please check under the label Masala Powders in my blog!!

1 cup cooked rice (in cooker, 1:2 ratio rice and water)
1/2 brinjal cut into cubes (put the brinjal cubes in water with salt )
5 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard
2 tsp chopped nuts
curry leaves
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2-3 tsp vangi bhaat powder
2 tsp tamarind pulp
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander leaves


  • In a pan heat oil and put mustard
  • When it starts crackling add curry leaves,nuts,turmeric powder and brinjal cubes
  • Add little salt and cover with a lid
  • When brinjal is cooked add tamarind paste and vangi bhaat powder and fry for 2 minutes
  • Add cooked rice and salt to taste and toss well
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with raita and pickle

Note: you can also use leftover rice!! and instead of brinjal use capsicum,carrot and green peas .It also taste very yummy!!
