Asian eggplants are so good stir fried in this delicious spicy sauce of garlic, soy and chilli! Serve over rice.


Serves: 6 

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 Asian eggplants, cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chilli garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian (toasted) sesame oil

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frypan or wok over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Cook and stir the eggplant cubes until they begin to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the eggplant with a slotted spoon, and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 more tablespoons of oil in the frypan over medium-high heat, and cook and stir the onions just until they begin to soften, about 30 seconds. Stir in the garlic, and cook and stir an additional 30 seconds. Mix in the soy sauce, water, oyster sauce, chilli garlic sauce, sugar and black pepper, and stir to form a smooth sauce. Return the eggplant to the frypan, lower the heat, and allow the vegetables and sauce to simmer until the eggplant is tender and almost all the liquid has been absorbed, about 5 minutes. Drizzle sesame oil over the dish, and give one final brief stir to combine.


Adding a small amount of chicken or pork can be done if you need the extra protein, but definitely is not necessary for the taste. Reduce chilli paste a bit if you find the dish too spicy for your taste.
