·         Dry roast all of the items                    
·         Grind everything to make a coarse mixture                
Mustard Seeds --------> 1 tsp
Curry leaves -----------> 2 strands
Gingelly Oil -------------> 3 tsp
·         Cook the rice and let it cool    
·         Do the seasoning in a Sauté Pan                     
·         Add Brinjal and fry for few minutes with salt               
·         Once it is cooked, add the Coconut mixture and leave it fro few minutes                  
·         Mix it with the rice                   

·         Serve with Raita or Vegetable Kurma                   


ü  Once I tried making with Green Peppers. It came out good. So as Cauliflowers. My DH liked the Cauliflower version more. 
ü  Have to try with Quinoa and Brown Rice instead of Basmati Rice
