Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or frypan over high heat. Add the eggplant and stir the eggplant until soft, about 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in the water, dried chilli flakes and garlic. Cover and simmer until all the water is absorbed. Meanwhile, mix sugar, cornflour, soy sauce and oyster sauce together in a bowl until sugar and cornflour have dissolved. Stir sauce into the eggplant, making sure to evenly coat the eggplant. Cook until the sauce has thickened.
