Keep on cooking the mixed brinjals for another two minutes. Taste now for salt and other ingredients. Now slowly add the paste of Khus khus/Groundnuts/Cashew nuts at this stage and add a little water so that the paste does not stick at the bottom. Mix the masalas once again thoroughly and let it simmer for four to five minutes. Garnish with freshly cut Kothumalli and serve hot.  Please reduce the hot spices by half for normal cooking.This curry is hot because pregnant women usually like very spicy dishes. It is biologically good for pregnent women to eat chillies and other spices .They help in keeping the system clean, Chillies are good pain killers and spices keep the blood flow proper. The sweat glands are over worked and they help in removing the toxins.
