  • Apply salt, pepper to the washed meat and marinate for about half an hour.
  • Cut the aubergine into round slices. Apply salt and shallow fry in a non-stick pan till golden brown. Set aside.
  • Boil about 2 liters of water. Add rice, a dash of cinnamon powder and salt and cook for about 5 minutes or until it is half done.
  • Drain out the excess water. Transfer the rice to a flattish pan and fork through to separate the grains. Set it aside.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the onions and fry till golden. Add the crushed garlic and fry for about 1 minute till it turns pale gold.
