Someday's i would not like to make two or three dishes for lunch and want to come out of kitchen soon with less work. tamarind rice, chitranna, vangi bath, arisi paruppu sadham are all the one's that i make to free me.
well the next day i cant do the same, literally i cant survive without sambhar and poriyal. may be genetically my tummy is trained like that:)
I remember seeing this karnataka recipe on my great grand mother's recipe collection. wonder how she managed to get the traditional karnataka recipes without any cookbooks, visits to the state and all.
My grandmother is a pro in making bisi bele bath. whenever we want to pack food to have in mid of travel, she wakes up as early at 3'o' clock and makes fresh masala and prepares bisi-bele bath. OMG, i am craving for it right now!!-):
Vangi Bath Masala powder
Home made vangi bath masala is full of flavors, i just loved the addition of dry coconut. this is the first time i used. the aroma and taste of kopparai thengaai contributing to the dish is too good.
Vangi bhath, i tasted it first at Mavalli Tiffin Rooms(MTR), from then i used to cook this vangi bhath once in a week.
Vangi bath is truly addictive for brinjal lovers. so going ahead with a warning...I used to cook vangi bath atleast once in a week, when we were in bangalore using MTR vangi bath masala.
If you tell any kannadiga, that you made vangi bath with MTR vangi bath masala mix, they will give you a weird look. iam telling you this from my experience. they always trust their home made masala. iam happy, finally i made my own masala!
