This dish is a creative and a delicious way to serve Chinese style eggplant. The chilli adds a great kick.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 Chinese eggplants, cubed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli oil, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Place the eggplant cubes into a large bowl, and sprinkle with salt. Fill with enough water to cover, and let stand for 30 minutes. Rinse well, and drain on paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, red wine vinegar, sugar, chilli, cornflour and chilli oil. Set the sauce aside.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frypan or wok over medium-high heat. Fry the eggplant until it is tender and begins to brown, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Pour in the sauce, and cook and stir until the sauce is thick and the eggplant is evenly coated. Serve immediately.
