spicy aubergine salad

This Chinese style spicy aubergine (eggplant) salad is very easy and quick to make. It is a great accompaniment to your Chinese themed dinner party. A nice and spicy side dish, in fact I often enjoy it as a simple & quick lunch with some plain white rice.

I have used Japanese aubergines, which are the long thin ones. But you could make this dish with regular aubergines. Or also with the small, mini aubergines. Which would look quiet cute!

Make the spicy aubergine your own…

You can adjust the spices to your own liking. Add more chilli’s if you prefer your dish very hot and spicy. The sauce can be made very strong flavoured, by using less water.

Make this dish your own by changing its topping with;

  • parsley
  • chives
  • mint
  • sesame seeds
  • toasted chopped peanuts
  • almonds sliced and toasted
  • crispy fried onions

In china lunches and dinners often consists of having multiple sharing bowls on a table. This spicy aubergine salad, or similar type of salads would always be included. It pairs very well with many things, and brings some comforting spice to your table.
