Vangi Bhath (brinjal Rice)

This recipe was prepared in the cooking segment of a show on Colors TV- Subah Ki Chai. The host of the show was none other than our popular Singapore actor Kumar. As a SecretIndianRecipe homecook I was given an opportunity to prepare two recipes on this show. One of it was Vangi bhat using Maiya's Mix.. I made the recipe on the show using Maiyas vangi bhat mix, but incase you don't find this mix here's the full recipe including the masala preparation from scratch.
