You know what the Chinese and the Indians have in common? RICE!! It's our STAPLE food. We eat it with everything.
We Indians ESPECIALLY LOVE mixing it with SPICES and VEGETABLES to make it more flavorful and different. The spices make the STAPLE food more interesting to eat.
Here's a signature rice dish from Karnataka (a state in Southwest of India) called Vangi Bhath. It's made with a special blend of spices called Vangi Bhath spice powder (which include coriander, black gram dal, cumin, red chili, Fenugreek, cloves, and cinnamon), eggplant or brinjal, curry leaves, peas, cashews, mustard seeds and of course, plain white rice.
|I love eating Vangi Bhath with a little bit of YOGURT!|
- To make the rice dish, simply follow instructions on the back of the spice powder packet.
- These packets are available at most Indian grocery stores such as Subzi Mandi or Patel Brothers.
