Vegetable Brinji with Gobi 65

I know its been a looooong time since we have updated our food blog but better late than never!! We had a medicial check up for my daughter and the doctor advised me to include coconut milk in her food for her to increase weight....and my daughter was - yuckkkk! So I thought I should do it in a way she does not know that coconut milk has been added. So I made this vegetable Brinji for her lunch today and made Gobi 65. Do try it and let me know ur feedback
Vegetable Brinji

Water 2 cups
Salt as reqd
Ghee 1 1 /2 spoon
Oil 1/2 spoon
Main ingredient - brinji leaf 2 to 3 leaves
Garnishing :
Cashews 10 piece
Method :
Clean the basmati rice and soak it in cocconut milk for 10 to 15 mts . In the mean time, take a pan add little bit of ghee and fry the cashews and keep aside. In the same pan add the remaining ghee + oil and add Bay leaf (brinji ),Cinnamon,cloves and cardamom. Fry them and add onions followed by ginger garlic paste and scald well. Stir well till the raw smell of the GG paste vanishes. Followed by green chilly and garlic and combine well. Fry for fe minutes so that the garlic gets roasted. For those who wants to add some veggies can go ahead and add it now. Literally we dont add any veggies to Brinji rice. Transfer this mixture straight to the rice soaking in coconut milk and add the remaining amount of water specified and cook for 5 minutes in pressure cooker. For electric cooker,transfer the contents to the pan given for electric cooker and cook until the mode changes to warm. Serve hot!!
