I am a great proponent of one pot meals. So Vangi bath is great! It is even better if I can replace white rice with Quinoa. This makes 2-3 servings if you are on a diet.
1/2 cup quinoa
1 Japanese eggplant, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 small yellow onion sliced
1 jalapeno sliced
a touch of turmeric
a dash of asafoetida
1-2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1-2 tsp Vangi Baath mix or make your own
1-2 tbsp tamarind juice
1 tsp grated coconut
1-2 tsp toasted cashews or peanuts (optional)
Salt to taste
cilantro to garnish
Bring one cup water to boil and cook the Quinoa as per instructions. Set aside.
Meanwhile heat oil in pan. Add turmeric, asafoetida, cumin and fry for a minute. Add sliced onion and jalapeno and saute for 2-3 minutes until golden. Add chopped eggplant and fr for 10-15 minutes till cooked. Season with salt, add tamarind juice and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Season with Vangi bath mix or home made curry powder, grated coconut and mix well.
Combine with Quinoa, garnish with some chopped cilantro and top with some toasted nuts such as cashews or peanuts.
