Coconut-Vegetable Rice

One day, I suddenly got thinking of coconut rice. Traditionally, my mum makes a delicious yellow (from turmeric) coconut rice and serves it with a very good fish curry. The pairing of the spiciness from the curry and the creaminess from the rice is amazing. Using that as an inspiration, I made a coconut vegetable basmati rice. This way, I not only get my carbohydrates, I also get my nutrition from vegetables. For the 'heat' factor, I paired it with tofu sambal and since I had one brinjal sitting around, I sliced it and added into the sambal. I was very happy with the results, to say the least and it also ended up as lunch the next day for me!
