Arusuvai Friendship Chain - Vangi Bath Masala Powder

I was so very thrilled when Latha asked me if I wanted to be a part of the Arusuvai Friendship chain initiated by Lakshmi and Bhags and Bharathy.

I was wondering what would be the surprise ingredient that I would receive. It was very kind of laltha to send me the surprise ingredient along with a Friendship card. Thank you Latha for this.

The Surprise Ingredient was Homemade Vangi Bath Masala Powder. The Aroma just spread every where in my house. Thank you so much for sending the masala over.

Now I wanted to do something different this masala .Usually when it is Vangi Bath Masala, we get into mind Vangi Bath. But I decided to try something new and trust me the outcome great. So thank you latha for sending me over this masala powder. So this is my recipe...

Raw Materials Required

Tindora -1 lb
Onions -1/2 chopped
Vangi Bath Masala -1 1/2 tsp
Jeera -1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil - 2-3 tsp

Preparation Style

In a small kadai add the oil and jeera. Allow it to crack and add onions. Fry the onions until they turn golden brown in color. Add the tindora and fry them under low flame for few minutes. Then add the vaangi bath masala and salt and fry them until they are cooked. They where excellent in taste. Serve it hot with chapatti or rice.

Friends I am going to tag Seema for this chain to continue. I have mailed a couple of our blog friends to participate in this friendship chain. Waiting get a reply from them so that I can pass over the surprise ingredient.
