Vangi Bath/Eggplant (Brinjal) Rice#Foodieextravaganza

This is a combo dish, using rice and vangi which is eggplant in Karnataka, a complete vegan, gluten free meal. Have this with any raita and enjoy this unique, awesome rice dish originating South India - Karnataka.
2 Cups Rice
1 Big Long Eggplant/Brinjal – cut into big pieces
1" Cinnamon stick
1 Teaspoon Cumin seeds
½ Teaspoon Mustard seeds
A Sprig Curry Leaves s
2 Tablespoons Chopped Coriander leaves
Salt to taste
½ Cup Oil
½ Tablespoons Homemade Vangi Bath Masala 

Cook the rice and spread in a wide bowl. Each grain of the cooked rice must be separate but soft.

Add ¾ of the prepared powder and salt to the cooled rice. Mix Well gently.
Heat the oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, cinnamon, cashews and curry leaves. Lower the flame and add chopped brinjal pieces, little salt and mix it well and close the lid. Keep stirring gently every few minutes and cook well without adding any water. Once the brinjal is cooked well add the remaining powder and stir well. Finally add the rice and cook for couple of minutes and add the chopped coriander leaves. 
Serve with fresh curd and enjoy. 

My Notes
Use any type of black or purple variety of eggplant/brinjal you wish. 
Adjust the vangi bath masala according to your taste and spicyness required.
