Vaangi Bhath

It's always a headache everyday to decide fixing on a meal. Earlier my mom used to have this and now it's my turn . I've learned my lesson and realised how she (my mom ) would have felt when she had to make meals for us.. ahh, it's gonna get better n better as my baby grows !! No idea what he s gonna ask.. oh yeah, "What goes around comes around ..." is true.. The problem is, it's not only with child , also with my dear hubbie , again he doesn't eat egg plant..on the contrary, I love egg plant. So I had to play some gimmick and make him eat .. How long am i gonna do this ??? here comes a Great PAUSE....

Ingredients :

Table 1 :

Boiled rice -- from 2 cups (make sure each grain is seperate ,add oil while cooking )
Egg Plant ( long one ) -- 2 nos.

Table 2 :

For seasoning :

Oil -- as needed
Mustard seeds -- 1 tsp
Channa dhal -- 1 1/2 tbsp
cashews -- a handful
Curry leaves -- 1 sprig
Hing -- a pinch

Table 3 :

To roast and grind to a powder :

Dry red chillies -- 4 to 5 nos.
Coriander seeds -- 1 1/2 tsp
Channa dal -- 1 tbsp
Urad dal -- 1 tbsp
Cinnamon -- 1 inch piece
Poppy seeds /khus khus -- 1/4 tsp
Sesame seeds -- 1/4 tbsp
Dry coconut -- 1 1/2  tbsp
Cumin seeds -- 1/4 tsp
Clove -- 1 no. (optional)

Method :

Heat a tsp of oil and fry all the items given in the table 3 one by one seperately and grind to a fine powder. Chop the brinjal into chunk pieces and keep in the water. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wide botoomed vessel and heat it. Do the seasoning. Add the mustard seeds and pop it. Then throw in the hing,channa,urad,curry leaves and fry. drop in nthe brinjals now and finely saute in the low flame for 5 minutes or until they cooked. u may sprinkle some water to cook it. ( I  cooked the brinji's until they gets mashed so that my VJ would eat ). Add salt while cooking and mix it evenly. U may now add the raosted ground masala powder and finely saute along with the egg plant so that the masla gets infused. Saute for a couple of minutes , not forget to stir though !!  Finally add the cooked rice and mix it with the masala ,adjust the salt...(pls keep the flame in the low flame ) Combine well and u may remove from the heat. Fry the cashews seperately and add it finally to the dish.. Mix and serve it with raita ...Sure, it's yummy for ur tummy..

Happy eating guys !!!
