    Very straightforward easy to make, am sure I'll be making it again fairly soon as I love eggplants and it goes really well with rice.  -  08 Mar 2016


    This is a really easy recipe that everyone just loves. The chilli bean paste really brings this dish to another level. Serve with rice, rice vermicelli or wrap in up iceberg lettuce cups. You'll want to make this recipe again and again.  -  15 Dec 2015
