Discuss : KY cooks – Chinese Style Fried Brinjal

  1. KY, I never try to cooked it just stir fried but Szechuan style. Will try your recipe for it seem easy and ingredient easy to get.

  2. I like to add some dried shrimps into our brinjal dish. Love this! 🙂

  3. Looks good. Usually I would just steam and ulam with sambal belacan.

  4. I love eggplant too! In dips, baked in the oven, pan fried – it’s all good.

  5. Chef KY, any idea how to maintain the purple hue of the brinjal even after cooking it? Some restaurants really maintain that. I’ve tried asking but they politely showed me their middle finger!

  6. my favourite brinjal recipe is brinjal yong tau foo 😀

  7. Thanks for the recipe KY. Will try it soon. But perhaps 2 tablespoons of salt is a bit too much?

  8. I like your “leong choy yat tong” menu…nothing like a home-cooked meal eh? 😉

  9. Thanks for the idea! This looks like a great recipe that you could really vary according to taste or dietary requirements. I might add some protein, or try some extra veggies. Delicious!

  10. Looks like a nice simple recipe for brinjal. I have to try that one day

    I have a greenpan wok like that too. I like using it and really easy to clean up

  11. I never cook brinjal because my hubby & daughter will not eating it & it’s hard to cook, it tend to be absorb oil >_<
