    Hi Lakshmi,
    You’ve got a nice blog. As we are in a Home away from Home, we will always be in search of variety recipes.
    Can you tell me how this vangibath masala is prepared? or we have to buy it readymade in Indian stores?
    and one more question. It goes well with what other curries other than raitha?

    Hello Sunitha ,
    I have used Vangi bath masala which is readily available at Indian Stores.
    We can prepare it at home also . Early in the morning when I need to prepare some thing in hurryf for lunch I use the masala which saves time. But I can give u the recipe of the masala at a later date. Since brinjal is already there , we have to look for some thing which goes well with it . That could be curries made either with tomato or potato which will enhance the taste as per me.
    With probably less masala in it as Vangi bath already has masala in it.In case you happen to try some thing else and it tastes good do let me know. I shall try it out . Thanks for your interest in my site and any suggestions and corrections i am ready to know.

    Hi Sunitha
    I have updated the Vangi bath masala preparation. It tastes better than the one you buy from outside. May be we can prepare and store it.
