Kathirikkai/Eggplant Coconut Milk Pulao

I can have quick,delicious one pot meal at anytime either for my lunch or  for my dinner, love them very much..These sort of one pot meal are quite easier to prepare also its quite a fantastic way to feed anyone with  any sort of veggies mostly they dislike or with their favourite meats, this time i prepared this flavourful pulao with eggplants and rice cooked in coconut milk as a delicious pulao, as usual this pulao goes for simple ingredients and very easy to prepare,its suits tremendously as a lunch box menu. Serve this pulao with spicy potato chips,fryums or with a hard boiled egg, am damn sure that you will definitely have a fabulous meal...

1no Onions (large & chopped)

1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Coriander powder

Wash and soak basmati rice with coconut milk and 2cups of water for 10minutes, cook the rice in rice cooker with the soaked coconut milk-water mixture...keep aside and let them cool completely...
