This Chinese eggplant dish comes from the Sichuan cuisine. It is at the same time sharp, sour, salty and sweet, which is typical for dishes from this region of China.

Chinese Eggplant with Garlic Sauce

I found beautiful round eggplants at the market! It’s a little early for the season, but I let myself be tempted as they were beautiful!

This Chinese dish is really popular, it can be enjoyed in almost all regions in China. Why so successful? Because it is a gourmet dish that is cheap and requires few ingredients: Chinese eggplant, soy sauce and garlic. This is one of my favorite dishes! 🙂

Yet to do well this Eggplant with Garlic Sauce, that is to say have pieces well fluxes, neither too fat nor too dry, you have to have some patience to cook gently.

The classic version is to first fry the eggplant pieces completely immersing them in oil. But I prefer to make them return conventionally with less oil. It’s less greasy but requires gentle cooking and it must be next to monitor and stir.

  1. Hello Harpreet,
    Absolutely love Szechuan food and your web site bringing authentic Chinese cuisine.

    As a fastidious 72 year old foodie, who has been cooking Chinese and other world cuisines since age 14, I am very much wishing to try this recipe. Why in particular? – cos I love aubergine, and am very much attracted to your recipe photo which scrumptiously shows slices of extremely fresh Chinese (possibly Szechuanese?) red chillies. I am drooling already!

    Three weeks ago I planted some Szechuan “Facing Heaven” chili seeds, 7 of which germinated and are now pricked out and on their way to becoming sturdy plants !

    Only one problem – that your ingredients list does not include ANY fresh chillies. So where do we go from here? OK, I can substitute – and quantity is a matter of taste depending upon hotness – but I would very much like to know –
    1) Are the chillies in the photo Chinese, Szechuan or Australian – and
    2) What is the name of the particular variety shown in the photo (don’t appear to be Facing Heaven)?

    Please advise.
    Best wishes , Richard
