Many people enjoy exotic international foods only when they are in the mood for it. However, traditional and homely foods are always enjoyable for all of us, as they bring back happy and comfortable memories of home!

Vangi Bhath is one such traditional Maharashtrian dish with an appetizing aroma and rich taste. Made of brinjals and rice, flavoured with a gamut of spices and a rich paste of coconut, onions, spices and seeds, this makes a perfect one-dish meal when served with a cup of curds or a raita.
