Kathirikai rasavangi or brinjal rasavangi recipe with chana dal and fresh ground spice mix makes it really flavourful and delicious. Same recipe can be adapted to other vegetables like poosanikai.

I have posted poosanikai rasavangi which my father in law shared what he remembered. Mom’s version was different which I remembered and have been asking her n number of times and forget. I wanted to try her version but since I wanted to try it out with brinjal, out of laziness kept postponing. Brinjal is not a favorite at home.

Check my other brinjal recipes :

I had some brinjals about to go bad otherwise, so quickly checked with mom and made finally. During my Chennai trip, last day my mami made pavakkai pitlai, which made me crave for rasavangi. Finally it got fulfilled. When mami made pitlai, the whole house was filled with the aroma of the coriander seeds and asafoetida combined which was heavenly.

I was just wondering if I make the same, will it smell the same way? And yes, it was smelling amazing when made kathirikai rasavangi and was so happy about it.

  • My mami’s rasavangi and mom’s are different, but both are good.¬†Main differences are mami uses moong dal as base for kootu and urad dal for spice powder. She does not use fenugreek seeds. While amma uses chana dal as base and uses chana dal for spice powder too.
  • Add tamarind after vegetable gets cooked.¬†
  • Can use tomato in place of tamarind. make sure to use tangy one.
