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

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Monday, December 26, 2011

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!!!!!
2 Cups cooked Rice
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.
  • Add Brinjals and Saute well. Let them cook for 10 minutes.
  • When the Brinjals are half-cooked, add the grounded masala powder and salt to it.Mix well.
  • Cover and Cook in a Simmer flame until done.
  • Add the Cooked Rice and mix well.
