RCI: Karnataka..... Recipe 2 : Vangi Bhath

My hubby is an amazing cook, I never had any doubt about it.But this really took me by shock. It was a lousy sunday afternoon and I was busy doing my work and was bored to make lunch....hence, I requested my hubby if he could make any of his rice items.And he came up with this.....

Okie to build some surface for my hubby's culinery skills, I would like to say that my hubby is super talented when it comes to making rice dishes. His speciality item is Tomato rice and Vegetable Biryani.Today I add to the list Vangi Bhath...:)... the best part is he made it without the vangi bhath masala yet it tasted so nice and so authentic...( i cannot make it without the vangi bhath masala.)

So here iam displaying my hubby's talent and his recipe for this super Vangi bhath.okie the presentation and photography courtesy goes to me hhehehe.... just kidding..
