Spicy Brinjal Fries with Minced Pork Recipe ( 香辣茄子炒肉碎 )

spicy brinjal fries wiith minced pork recipe
Are you a fan of Eggplant ( 茄子 ), or otherwise known as Brinjal or Aubergine? Prized for its unique taste and texture, the glossy purple fruit becomes tender when cooked and it is widely used in its native India.

When buying eggplants, always choose those that are firm, and skin should be smooth and shiny without bruises. When cooking eggplants, I would usually slice them and sear both sides before stir frying till soft and mushy with other ingredients. But for this dish, I am trying out another method – a dry version.

During my recent trip to Perak, I tried a different style of cooking in one of the Restaurants in Ipoh. The eggplant dish was dry, unlike the type we usually eat in Singapore which is usually wet with gravy. It was delicious and here I am, cooking this Tasty Spicy Brinjal Fries with Minced Pork ( 香辣茄子炒肉碎 ) with a twist by adding Shitake Mushrooms!
