Rajma Vangibhath

After bisi bele bath, my all time favourite one pot meal is this vangibhath. I can survive for many days with these both dishes, i dont even need any side dish for having this both dishes anytime. I always have few homemade spice powders in my pantry,i usually prepare most of my dishes with those homemade spice powders. I do prepare quite often vangibhath and bisi bele bath spice powder eventhough i love this MTR vangibhath spice powder.As i told earlier, i picked this MTR vangibhath powder during our vacation last year in India,i prepared already twice vangibhath with this store bought powder with eggplants, they came out super delicious and i wanted to prepare something different with legumes and eggplants to give a twist to this usual vangibhath. Immediately i choosed rajma for making this vangibhath, both rajma and eggplants together works out terribly awesome and we loved having this super flavourful vangibhath for our lunch simply with potato chips.

Obviously with this store bought vangibhath powder, your vangibhath will gets ready super quick and its quite helpful to cook up easily this vangibhath quite often even if you very much busy with other stuffs.Just add any sort of legumes and veggies to give a twist to this usual vangibhath.Do check the other marathoners running this 17th edition of blogging marathon here.
