One more memory from US stay…. In India yet to make again, but was great in taste. Planning for lunch this weekend.
I never had
a chance to eat vangi bhat while we were in bangalore. But always having a keen desire of
making it. After checking many blogs I found different ways of cooking. I was
very confused about it because I never thought of brinjal mix with rice. So
finally tried the way similer to lemon rice just added tamarind paste as an
extra ingredient. When finished cooking I was so happy the way it came out J. Me and my husband loved it so much
that next day my husband told me to make it for lunch too. Really a must try
recipe for all J
