Instead of Coriander leaves use bangalore brinjal. Chop the brinjal to the fine pieces and half cook it. If you have microwave oven cook the brinjal without adding water for about 3-4 mins. Use the half cooked brinjal in the above recipe instead of coriander leaves. You will get a different flavor of brinjal and brinjal 'haters' also love this rice. Try and let me know.
