Kathrikai Saadham/Brinjal Rice – Day 4, Blogging Marathon #11

I always wanted to try Vaangibaath, the flavorful Brinjal Rice. I was going through some recipes for it, but all needed some extra masala’s which i didnt have handy. So, i tried out something on my own, to make this Recipe. Thank Goodness it came out well. Crispy Brinjals with the ground masala tasted awesome!!!!!

5-6 Brinjals
1 medium onion
1 medium tomatoes
2-3 tbsp Oil
Curry leaves a few
Salt to taste

Roast n Grind
2 tbsp Chana Dal/Gram Dal
1 tbsp Coriander Seeds
1 tbsp Fresh grated Coconut
5-6 Red Chillies


  • Dry Roast the ingredients under Roast n Grind and Grind into Powder.
  • Remove the stem of the brinjals and slice them lengthwise.
  • Heat oil in a Non-stick Pan, Splutter mustard seeds, add hing and Curry leaves.
  • Add onions and saute until translucent, next add tomatoes, sprinkle little water and cook until soft.
