  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 pinch pepper

Instructions

  • Wash and cut your eggplant lengthwice. Soak it in a salt water or water to prevents it getting darker. I usually soak it in a salted water also to prevent it from absorbing too much oil from the wok and becoming greasy. This technique is really useful if you are going to stir fry.
  • In a wok, heat cooking oil, saute garlic and onion until the fragrance comes out. Add minced pork, stir it constantly until golden brown. Add eggplant and stir fry for few minutes.
  • Add the mixture sauce, mix thoroughly until the sauce coated in the eggplant and braise it a slow cooking.
  • Lastly, add the extra seasoning like soy sauce or fiah sauce as your preference and if needed and continue cooking until the eggplant builds the flavor and becomes tender.
  • Serve with rice.

Notes

Optional:
Garnish it with spring onion, red chilli, chilli sauce to make more spicy or fried garlic as your choice.
Preparation Tips:
Soaking eggplant in salted water, you need to wash it again and squeeze to avoid too salty.
