Method

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients. Heat a large frying pan and pour in 1 tbsp of the oil. Season the aubergine and brown on all sides until soft (you may need to add another 1 tbsp oil as they cook) – this will take about 15 mins. Set aside.
  2. Pour the remaining oil into a wok. Add the onion and garlic, and stir-fry for 3-4 mins on a low heat until the onion is soft and the garlic golden. Add the aubergine and pour the sauce over. Stir together, turn the heat down to low and cover with a lid for 2 mins. Take the lid off and stir-fry again for 1 min more. Serve with chilli slices and coriander sprinkled over.

Really delicious for such a simple recipe!

Also, I only rated 4 cause it isn't that filling (served with a decent potion of rice).

This smelled really vinegary when we were cooking it but it doesn't taste it. Really surprised at how nice this. The chilli and coriander really added to it, but we had one with and one without and both enjoyed our meal. Served with thai rice. Also, I misread and used Chinese Rice Vinegar, but doubt that affected it too much.
