Eggplant stirfry with noodles


  • Fry the eggplant in 2-3 lots in ¾ cup very hot oil until lightly browned. Drain well on kitchen paper towels and set aside. (Also set oil aside for another use.)
  • Then mix together the soy, black vinegar, kecap manis and chilli bean sauce. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Soak the noodles in boiling water for 2-3 mins, gently separating with tongs as you do so. Then drain well.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and gently saute the onion, chillies and garlic, continually stirring. Add the eggplant, sauce and stock. Turn the heat down, mix well, cover and gently cook for 5 mins or so. Then add the coriander and drained noodles. Toss well to heat through and serve garnished with spring onions.
