    4. Add the coconut and stir.
    5. Cool down the mixture and grind with a very small piece of cinnamon and water to prepare a smooth paste.
    6. In another kadai, heat oil and temper with cardamoms and cloves. Add the onion and fry until it turns brown.

    8. Boil until the brinjals get cooked.
    9. Add the dal-coconut paste and mix well. Adjust the water consistency.
