Eggplant and purple yam rice

Advertisements

Wanted to prepare a very mild flavored rice dish that can go well with the robust South Indian kurma. Eggplants are a simple vegetable which can imbibe multitude of flavors and yet prevail in the background of a dish and not take up any front-line space πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ In order to give this rice a different texture, decided to bring in some purple yams. Air-fried these yams to a crisp texture and mixed it to the rice. The crispy and chewy texture of the yams was definitely something which we have not tried before and enjoyed a lot.Β 

So here we go, a very simple Eggplant and purple yams rice dish.Β
