While the rice is getting done work with the masala. Dry roast Cardamm, cinnman, cloves, star anise stirring around continuously and fry on low to medium heat. Remove and set them aside. Now same way fry the dry red chillies, coriander seeds for 3 mins same way as we do the above masala ingredients and finally add in the coconut and fry for just 10 secs and remove to set aside. Similarly roast chanadal and urid dal and set all of them aside. Allow them to cool and blend to a fine powder.

Add potatoes, cover to cook for 3 mins, then add in brinjals and cover to cook till both potatoes and brinjals are done completely but should retain their shape. Add in the masala with cooked rice.

Season the rice with salt, blended masala powder and lemon juice and mix well but take care not to over mix. Serve it as is or with raitha.
