Vangi bath recipe, Brinjal rice, Vaangi bhaat

Vaangi Bath/ Vaangi bhaat
This is my favourite,because I am a big fan of brinjal. I became a great fan of this vangibath,when I was staying in hostel and enjoyed this one in our hostel mess. I could not recreate the same taste,but definitely a very close taste  to that iyer mess in SRC Trichy. Most of the Hostel mess will be a night mare,only we had almost a good time. Especially after noon lunch will be as good as home food! We had no problem....This vangibath will be once in a month...but it will be so flavour ful!!!

Vaangi Bath/ bhaat recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 30 mins rice soaking time + 5 mins    |  Cook time: 30 mins    Serves: 3


Brinjal - 10

Rice (Long grain/basmati) - 1 cup

Tamarind - 1 tsp tightly packed

Turmeric - 1/4 tsp

Green chillies - 2

Curry leaves - 1 sprig

Ghee - 1 tblsp

Salt - As needed

Ginger - 1 inch piece

To Roast and grind

Coconut, grated - 2 tblsp

channa dal - 1 tblsp

Urad dal - 1 tsp

Coriander seeds - 1 tsp

pepper corns - 7

Red chilli - 3

To temper

Oil - 1 tblsp

Cinnamon - 1 inch piece

Cloves - 2

Elachi - 2

Bay leaves - 1 or 2

Mustard - 1 tsp

Urad dal - 1 tsp

Channa dal - 1 tsp


  1. Soak rice for half an hour,cook it with salt for 3 whistles in medium flame after first whistle.( I used 1: 1& 1/2 , rice : water ratio) You can cook the rice with  the whole garam masalas-cloves,elachi,cinnamon,bay leaves too. Cool the cooked rice and keep aside. 
  2. Roast all the ingredients with few drops of oil under "To roast and grind" table to golden brown/nice aroma rises....except coconut...coconut can be roasted very slightly, so add it lastly.
  3. vangi bath step 1 vangi bath step
  4. Cool it and powder it and keep aside.Cut brinjal into finger length strips and keep it immersed in water till use,cut ginger into thin strips and slit the green chillies.Extract tamarind juice from the tamarind.
  5. Heat the kadai with a tsp oil and add the seasoning items and roast it nicely. After done add ginger,green chillies and curry leaves.Add brinjals with turmeric and fry till soft.
  6. vangi bath step 1a vangi bath step 1b
  7. Add the tamarind juice,required salt for brinjal and bring it to boil. Add the ground masala and simmer for 3 minutes or till brinjal gets cooked.
  8. vangi bath step 2a vangi bath step 2b
  9. Take care that brinjal doesn't gets mashed. At the end the masala will become a thick paste and shiny.
  10. vangi bath step 3a vangi bath step 3b
  • You can chop the brinjals finely if you like it that way…
Check for salt Add this to rice and mix carefully. You can garnish with coriander leaves if u want.Serve hot with raita of your choice. I had with amma’s vadam
