Spicy eggplant soy sauce vegetarian dish

I read somewhere that there are male eggplants and female eggplants, and I find it so fascinating. I thought they´re all boys. Males or females, boys or girls, eggplants are delicious. I made this eggplant dish yesterday and I was surprised how tasty it turned out, definitely one of my favourite dish that I´ve cooked so far.

Bonbok a hme tete ka kio mi a thaw tuk sual i ka rak ttial tthan ee.

What we need

o.5 kg – Eggplants (small ones, boys- those that taste a little bitter)

2 tbs – Soy sauce

1 medium size – Onion

Spring onion (scallion)

4 cloves- Garlic

4 pcs (?) – Chili

1 tbs- Oil

1 cup- Water

Salt

A herhmi, bonbok, piat, phthnah, khachuan, soy sauce, hmanphek, cite, chiti le ti and si. Minute 12 hrawng ah cun an hmin dih ko.

(the quantity here are just to give some idea, you play with it)

How we do

Wash the eggplants, cut them in half as in this picture, and let them sit in salt water. Salt water? Yeah, get some water in a bowl add a couple pinch of salt in it. This is to reduce the bitterness of the eggplant.

Bonbok hi cite tlawmpal peihmi ti ah kan ciah ahcun a phaknak a zor deuh an ti i ka ciah ko.

Chop your onion, scallion, chilli, and mince the garlic. Heat the pan, add oil and fry onion, garlic and chili. If you want some color, add a pinch of tumeric powder or chilli powder of both. Drain salt water and add the eggplants in the frying pan. Stir and add soy sauce and salt, wait for a couple of minute and half a cup of water and close the lid. After about 5 minutes, add another half cup of water. Another 5 minutes and they´ll be well cooked, and we will add the chopped scallion. And then we´re done!

Buh le tihang a thiangmi te he a tlak tuk.

Remember to stir whenever necessary so that the eggplant won´t stick in the bottom. Also, be careful with how much salt you add, because the eggplants were soaked in salt water before and soy sauce is salty. Serve with rice and may be with a clear broccoli soup to neutralise the very many taste of your dish. You many want to throw away the skins.
