Quinoa Vangibath

In the quinoa flare at home these days. Trying many of the rice based dishes, replacing rice with Quinoa. Vangibath is a popular dish in the state of karnataka, India. It is made with rice, brinjal and a spicy powder. Vangibath powder is very aromatic powder made with many spices. Adding a dash of tamarind and jaggery will bring out a great balance in taste for this dish. Enjoy this spicy, tangy and slightly sweet flavored dish either for dinner or lunch.. If you are watching on carbs like me, then use Quinoa or Couscous instead of rice :)…
