I went back to Malaysia about 2 weeks ago to visit my parents as well as my lovely baby nephew. On the way back to Singapore, we bought some vegetables from Seremban, where my hometown Titi is near to, before heading for the famous beef noodle stall. Alas, Murphy’s Law reigned yet again, it’s closed. Both of us found a way to cheer up a bit - we saved some money by buying some fruits and vegetables at a very low price to bring back to Singapore.
We bought 4 eggplants at Ringgit Malaysia 1.00, which is about USD$0.25, for this dish. Method:
Cut them into half, season with some salt and pepper; massage some oil to coat the eggplant, grill for about 20 minutes or until it turns brown and soft.
At the same time, fry some minced garlic till brown. When the eggplant is done, sprinkle the garlic on top, season with a few dash of soy sauce.
