Mixed Vegetable Vaangi Baath

So, typically, Vaangi baath consists of eggplant. Literally Vaangi means eggplant and Baath means rice. Vaangi Baath = eggplant rice.

But, care for a change?Then insteadof just vaangi, why not add some mixed vegetables and go about preparing the dish as usual.

Here is how

We need:

1 cup of cooked rice,cooled and grains separated.

1 cup of mixed vegetables( carrots, capsicum, peas, green beans)-preferably cut  lengthwise.

2 tbsp oil

1tsp mustard seeds

1tsp urad dhal(black gram dal)

2 red chillies slit

2 tbsp Vaangibaath powder(MTR or ANY brand)

asafoetida-a pinch

Method:

In a wide pan heat oil on medium heat. once hot, add mustard seeds, asafoetida and Urad dal.

When the seeds splutter and urad dal turns red add the red chillies followed by the mixed vegetables. Saute the  veggies until tender on a medium heat. once the vegetables are tender, add  the Vangibaath powder and salt and stir well.

Turn off heat. Finally add the cooled rice and mix well evenly.

Squeeze lemon before serving.
