Vaangi Bath -- Baingan Rice -- Rice with Baingan

Vaangi Bath
There is one poem in my mother tongue.  The meaning of the poem is like: Do not find A Vegetable like Eggplant...A lady like Seetha whose face is in lotus shape... A deity like Lord Shiva...and Do not find a king like Rama (Ravana, who is a king of Lanka, is the only enemy to Rama). So, brinjal is the king of all vegetables. It tastes very well with other vegetables and also with rice. 


vankaya vanti kurayu...

pankajamukhi seetha vanti bhamamaniyum...

shankaruni vanti daivamu....

lankadhipu vairi vanti raajun kalade'

వంకాయ వంటి కూరయు

పంకజముఖి సీతవంటి భామా మణియున్


శంకరుని వంటి దైవము

లంకాధిపు వైరి వంటి రాజును గలడే

There is one more interesting song about brinjal:
