Posted in : RICE ITEMS - PULAV / MASALA BATH / BISIBELE BATH / CHITRANNA on by : Divya Suresh

Vangi is a Tamil word, meaning brinjal. A particular type of  masala powder is made to prepare this rice & it is called  ‘vangi bath powder’.  Vangi bath ( Brinjal Rice) is a nice aromatic, spicy rice preparation, which is one of the authentic dishes. In this rice preparation, we have to prepare brinjal curry first , then it should be mixed with cooked rice. The same masala powder can be used to make the rice bath using other vegetables like… Beans, Potato, Capsicum, Cluster beans etc. This masala bath can also be made using semolina / sooji in place of rice.
