Toasted eggplant with 5 flavors sweet and sour sauce

Dressing Ingredients

4 tablespoons vinegar
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon freshly chopped garlic
1 tablespoon freshly chopped ginger
1 tablespoon freshly chopped coriander
1 teaspoon freshly chopped chili (optional)


Cooking Ingredients

3 long, slender purple eggplants


Instructions

1. Mix all the ingredients well. You can adjust the amounts slightly to taste, and find out the balance of ingredients you prefer.
2. Chop the eggplants into sections 4cm long, and then carefully slice each piece into two halves lengthwise. Soak the chopped eggplants in 1 tablespoon of salt and 2 cups of water for about 2 hours.
3. Drain away the salty water from the eggplant. Cook the eggplant in the toaster oven or oven with 220C, for about 15 minutes, or until they are cooked.
4. Mix the toasted eggplant slices with the sweet and sour dressing well. Leave it for about 30 minutes, then it's ready to serve.
