Hot and Sour Aubergine

Last week I had the most amazing round aubergine delivered with my shopping. I think I have mention before that the family is not very keen on eating aubergine so I find myself disguising it in any way I can.

I used half the aubergine and some asparagus to make some tempura. Lovely with a sweet chilli dip. My youngest son, Oliver loved it!

With the other half and to go with some Chinese pork chops and egg fried rice I made the hot and sour aubergine as a side dish.

You will need:
2tbsp Vegetable oil.
1large aubergine, cut in chunks
1large onion, sliced.
2 garlic cloves, chopped.
Chilli flakes
Fresh coriander

For the sauce:
2tbsp soy sauce
2tbsp red wine vinegar
1tbsp caster sugar
1tsp cornflour des solved in a little water

Mixed all the sauce ingredients and reserve.
In a large wok or frying pan heat some oil and brown the aubergine gently on all sides, set aside and after adding some more oil add the onion and garlic and stir fry on a low heat till soft. Add the aubergine to the pan and pour the sauce over. Cover and cook for 5 more minutes.

Serve with a sprinkle of chilli flakes and freshly chopped coriander 😋
