How to make Honey Garlic Eggplant

  1. Cut the eggplant into 3/4 inch sticks.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-sided skillet to 182 degrees celsius. Fry the eggplant in small batches. Flip it if needed. Fry it for about two minutes until lightly golden brown. Don't soak it in oil for a long time. Remove it from the oil and drain it on a cooling rack.
  3. In a small cup, mix in the honey, ground pepper and soy sauce. Then keep it aside.
  4. In a pan, heat up 1 tsp of sesame oil and cook the garlic and chilli on a medium heat until it's slightly golden, make sure it is not browned. Then add in the honey-soy sauce mixture.
  5. Turn the heat to medium high so that the mixture bubbles, thickens and turns into a sticky texture.
  6. Toss the fried eggplant with the sauce and garnish it with sesame seeds, scallions and coriander.
  7. Serve it immediately with rice or any grain of your choice.
