Vegetable Brinji Rice Recipe – Seeraga Samba Rice Pulao Recipe

Vegetable brinji rice
Brinji rice is a very popular rice variety in small hotels in Chennai. Long back I had shared a plain brinji recipe with coconut milk. Recently I came across a vegetable brinji rice recipe(Brinji sadam in Tamil) in Eesha’s kitchen YouTube video which is completely different from my earlier version. So I tried it for our Sunday lunch. It came out well and tasted more like biryani/ pulao made with coconut milk.We all loved it. But I felt there is no much difference between the taste of brinji and biryani. There are many versions available for this particular recipe. Some recipes call for using freshly ground masala. As I had already shared a plain brinji sadam recipe, I wanted to prepare it with vegetables. Friends, If any of you know the authentic Chennai brinji rice recipe, please let me know. I am ready to try again and update this post. I have used jeera rice as its popularly known as brinji rice. So you can call this rice as Seeraga samba pulao as well. In the original recipe, it is prepared with basmati rice. So you can also use basmati or even Sona masoori raw rice to make this brinji. But the flavor and the quantity of water varies. For variations, you can add fried bread pieces at the end. As this recipe has no grinding job and done directly in a pressure cooker bachelors can give a try and pack it for your lunch box. Ok, Lets see how to make Tamil nadu style Vegetable brinji rice with step by step pictures.

Check out my Plain brinji rice recipe, Jeera rice veg biryani and my 40+ veg biryani varieties.

I used my Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder for extracting coconut milk easily. So I have shared separate step by step pictures for the same. Please check it out if interested. Preethi zodiac has really made my cooking much easier by helping me in chopping, grinding, atta kneading etc. Friends, you can think about buying this product if you are planning to change your old mixer.
