Thai Baby Eggplant Rice
Today is Friday & I was in such a weekend mood !!
Usually, we all have an urge to eat out on weekends but what about those days when your plan suddenly gets cancelled & you have to cook something impromptu !!
That’s precisely what happened today & I had to make something for dinner from whatever I had in the frig … So there started my digging into the refrigerator & I found I had some leftover cooked Brown Rice. It’s definitely not one of the things my hubby is crazy about so I had to think of making something really special to appease him. So I dug down further, haha !!
& To my Delight, I came across some Thai baby eggplants which I had purchased from Godrej Nature’s Basket two days back & completely forgotten about them. Then there was also cooked corn & zucchini which are always present in my frig.
So I thought of making a Healthy Delicious Thai Rice with these ingredients, a kind which I had tasted in Koh Samui some years ago but of course, they had some different ingredients except for the Baby Eggplants !!
So here’s the Recipe of My Quick Easy Recipe of THAI BABY EGGPLANT RICE !!
