    A mildly spicy (or very spicy if you like) eggplant dish. My mother has been making this for me since I was a child. It is SO GOOD!!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 4 Chinese eggplants, halved lengthways, then cut into 2cm slices
    • 1 cup (250ml) water
    • 1 tablespoon crushed dried red chilli flakes
    • 3 garlic cloves
    • 1 tablespoon white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cornflour
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce

    Directions
    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.

    This was super delicious, and I'm stealing the flavour base for future creations. - 17 Jan 2016
