  4. Coat each piece of eggplant with the flour/corn starch mixture, then with the egg followed by the flour/corn starch again.
  5. Once all pieces have been coated, set them aside for a few minutes to ensure the coating stays on while you heat some oil in a pot.
  6. Once the oil is hot, add the coated pieces of eggplant and fry for a few minutes until golden brown.
  7. Once all are fried, set them aside on some paper towels.
  8. In a wok, heat some avocado oil over low/medium heat.
  9. Add garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds then add the onions and sweet peppers. Cook for 1-2 mins.
  10. Add sweet and sour sauce and simmer for 1-2 minutes then add the fried eggplant and mix well to ensure all pieces are coated with the sauce.
  11. Garnish with freshly chopped chives!

NOTE:

  • The measurements above can be adjusted depending on your taste preferences.
  • The sweet and sour sauce was store bought (brand la choy I believe).
  • If you don’t have corn starch, you can use flour only. You can also only use corn starch.
