I had some basmati rice left over from the day before and had to make a quick lunch for friends. There was 2 aubergine sitting around. So I diced them up marinated it in some spices left it grilling in the oven 30 minutes. Poured some dried kombu algae into the water to soak. Had some leftover hazelnut soaked from the previous day to make milk out of it, but that did not happen! So I used some of it for the stir fry. This is what that came out in 35 minutes. Quick and easy stir fry with Basmati rice, Hazelnut, Saffron, Cinnamon combine with sweet peas, cardamom, coriander seeds and cumin powder and turmeric powder for a touch of yellow on the potatoes and finishing off with dry desiccated coconuts. Goes well with aubergine canapé, pesto, and kombu salad. Click to see
