Easy Vangi Bath( Vegetable Masala Baat).

Vangi baat is normally made of Rice, Vegetables and spices.  We can have Vanghi baat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Vangi baat is usually prepared by using Brinjals. (Vengai means brinjals). Now a days we use other vegetables like carrots, beans, potatoes, capsicum, cabbage and even different kinds of edible leaves too. Here is a recipe for you to prepare Vaangi baat with carrots, capsicum and potatoes.
Things Needed:
Rice :1 Cup.
Carrot: 1
Capsicum : 1
Potato : 1
Beans : 6 to 8.
Vangi baath Powder : 3 Table spoons.
Curry leaves: 8 to 10
Coriander Leaves: 2 Table spoons.
Oil : 3 to 4 Tablespoons
Salt : to taste.
Ingh or Asafoetida : a pinch
Urd Daal : 1 Teaspoon.
Mustard seeds: 1 Teaspoon
Tamarind Pulp : 2 Tablespoons.
Turmeric Powder:  a pinch.
Water: 3 cups.

Method :
Wash rice and keep it aside. Cut carrot, beans, capsicum and potatoes according to your wish.
Now keep a pan on the fire and heat. Put oil and mustard seeds and urd daal and let it spurt. Add curry leaves and Ingh to it. Add cut vegetables and fry them for 4 to 5 minutes. Add washed rice to it and fry them for 2 minutes. Add vangibaath powder and turmeric powder to it and put off the gas. Now put all the fried rice mixture to the pressure cooker or rice cooker. Add water and salt to it and cook . ( Using the rice cooker will be better. Its switched off automatically after the rice is cooked).  Mix  well the baat after its cooked, spread coriander leaves on the top and serve with cup of curd.
Note: Do not fry the rice for long time.  Vangi baath powder can be prepared and kept previously . ( Roast 2 tea spoons of coriander leaves, 1 spoon of channa daal, 1 tea spoon of urd daal and 4 to 5 cloves one by one until its brown and then roast 6 to 8 red chillies , powder them when they are cool to get the vangibaat powder. ). You can also use 2 tablespoons fresh coconut to get the better taste. Can use a table spoon of ghee  also.
