Fried eggplant with chicken floss

 I was in the hair salon a month ago when i saw this featured in a local chinese magazine. I've seen it  somewhere, cant remember which  blog that says certain restaurants do serve this dish. This is a very simple dish to prepare but this isnt the actual recipe. I didnt copy the recipe down from that magazine, it was kind of troublesome too to copy the recipe while the hair stylist was doing my hair. After all it's 2 or 3 ingredients,  i thought i can remember.. so this is more or less of that recipe.

Ingredients:
300gm eggplant/brinjals( cut into strips)
4 spoonful cornflour+ pinch of salt and pepper
chicken floss/pork floss

Seasoning
1/2 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt

Method:
1.Toss the brinjal all over cornflour and deep fry them until the brinjals turn slightly brown and crispy.
2. Remove them from wok and set aside. Saute garlic and return the brinjals to wok and add in sugar and
salt. Just give a quick toss orherwise the brinjals will turn soft. Dish up and lastly put on the chicken or pork floss.

Will be submitting this to Muhibbah Malaysian Monday event hosted by 3 hungry tummies.

  23. What a coincidence ! My mum just gave me this chinese magazine that features this dish too! I love egg plant fried to a crisp but never imagine it with floss, so it was quite eye-catching in the magazine. And now I see it here again and it looks simply delicious from the way you presented it !

  26. Hi Lena, Holy Smoke! You sure come out with delicious creations I've never tried before.
    This your own creative invention or?
    Looks real good too.

    Hey Lena, next day take a pic of your kitchen.....
    Nothing like seeing a gourmet cook's kitchen, ha ha.
    No need to wear cheong sum pose next to kitchen, sarong can also, but would be nice. What I call 'special effects'. Arhaaaa ha ha.
    Have a nice day.
    Lee.
