Aubergine (Eggplant) Kinpira

If you like braised eggplant with pepper and chilli, here is another rather similar dish - Eggplant Kinpira using only simple ingredients. Mirin is omitted in this recipe, you can add mirin or cooking rice wine, if desired.

Preparation:     5 mins Cooking time:  5 mins
Ingredients (serves 2-4)
°         250g  aubergine (eggplant), cut into strips
°         1 tablespoon olive oil
°         some toasted sesame seeds
°         some chilli flakes (optional)
°         some coriander or Chinese celery (optional), for garnish  

°         3 tablespoons light soy sauce
°         60ml water or dashi stock
°         1 tablespoon sugar

1.      Place all the seasoning ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
2.      Heat oil in a wok. Fry the aubergine or eggplant for 2-3 minutes.  Pour in the seasoning and simmer for 1-2 minutes or until it is dry.  
3.      Dish up, top with coriander or Chinese celery, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, chilli flakes and serve immediately.
