Instructions
Marinate Eggplants:
  1. Prep eggplants by making a ‘+’ on the bottom.

For the Rice:
  1. Cook rice until tender, make sure that the rice doesn’t get mushy. Let cool.
  2. Heat oil and ghee in a large pan; add the spices (cardamom, cloves, bay leaf, shah jeera) and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  3. Next add the onions, green chilies, ginger+garlic paste and cook until onions are light brown.
  4. Add the marinated eggplants along with all of the yogurt and cook till the eggplants are tender, about 10~15 minutes.
  5. Season with salt and add the cooked rice. Mix gently to make sure that the eggplants stay intact. Garnish with herbs and serve warm. Enjoy!!
