Aubergines, native to India, are a favourite ingredient in kitchens all over the world. They are a perfect vegetarian main dish because of its meaty texture. An aubergine with flabby skin will probably taste bitter. Gently press it with your thumb, the indentation should return fast if it is fresh.
- Wash eggplant, remove caps and cut into stripes like French fries. Place them in a heat-proof plate. Steam for about 10-12 minutes over the high heat.
- Mix all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside. Spread the sauce over the steamed aubergine. Garnish with the shredded spring onion and serve immediately.
