Brinjal Rice


Recipe and photo Courtesy: Padmini, Srinivasan (my parents)

This recipe is very different from the authentic Karnataka style Vangi bath. It is an instant recipe and can be made in a few minutes if you have the Karamathu Podi (curry powder) at home.

Ingredients:

2 cups brinjal chopped long and thin
3/4 cup rice (Basmati preferred)-you can use any rice of your choice
Salt to taste
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Channa dal 1 tsp
Urad dal 1/2 tsp
Peanuts/Groundnuts-1 tbsp
1 sprig curry leaves
Oil-3 tsp
Chilli powder 1 tsp
Karamathu Podi (S.Indian curry powder)- 1 1/2 tbsp

Cook rice such that it is grainy.
Add oil in a kadai. Splutter mustard seeds
Add channa dal, urad dal, ground nuts, curry leaves and roast till golden.
Add chopped brinjal. Add sufficient salt, turmeric and chilli powder.
Saute till soft.
Add the karamathu podi and mix well.
Stir in the rice, mix evenly and simmer for a few more minutes.
Check for salt.
Serve with pappad/vadams/chips
