Brinjal rice, Vangi Bath is a keeper recipe with a lot of spice flavours. This recipe again is perfect for lunch box. Here is how to do Vangi bath, Kathirikkai Sadam my aunts style.

Getting the consistency of the rice is the key to variety rice. I always cook the rice in a pressure cooker using pot in pot method. Using a pot inside a pressure cooker avoids the spewing of water outside the cooker while cooking. I have used Sona Masuri (Raw Rice) today. Here is how I do it.

For every cup of rice, use 2 cups of water. Wash the rice in running water 2-3 times until the water runs clear, Soak one cup of rice in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes. Take a pressure cooker and fill it with one inch of water. Place the bowl with the soaked rice and water and cover and cook for exactly 2 whistles. Remove from heat and wait for the pressure from the cooker to be released naturally.

    Novice cook here. Vangi bath turned out wonderful. Used desiccated coconut instead of fresh. Can I replace fresh coconut with desiccated one where ever we saute fresh coconut for masala (in other recipes)? Please guide. Thank you.

      Thank you. Fresh coconut and desiccated coconut are not interchangeable all the time. In some recipes it might work.
