How to make Brinjal Rice

  1. First prep up the vegetables. Wash and soak the basmati rice until use. In a small blending jar, add fennel seeds, green chillies, ginger, garlic and grind into a fine paste. Set aside.
  2. In a pan, add oil. Once warm, add the cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf and shahi jeera. Allow them to pop.
  3. Stir in the sliced onions. Saute until slightly golden.
  4. Add the ground paste and saute for a minute until the raw smell from ginger and garlic disappears.
  5. Add in the chopped vegetables and peas. Stir well and saute.
  6. Stir in the coconut milk and water along with the salt.
  7. Bring this to a gentle boil then add rice, salt and half of the coriander leaves. Stir well.
  8. Cover and cook on a medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes until all the moisture is absorbed and the rice gets cooked. Once cooked turn off the heat. Sprinkle garam masala powder and garnish with remaining coriander leaves.
  9. Creamy coconut vegetable rice is ready.

My Tip:

You can add other vegetables of your choice. Basmati rice can be substituted with long grain rice as well.
