Bok Choy, Eggplant Stir Fry

Makes about 3 servings
BokChoy is my husband's favorite vegetable and it is very nutritious too. Above all very easy to cook.
Make a concoction of the following:
  1. 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  2. 2 tsp of sugar
  3. 1 tsp of stir fry sauce
  4. a pinch of salt
  5. 1 tsp of red chilly paste
  • Cut the BokChoy stalks into diagonal slices, and leaves into small strips
  • Cut one long egg plant into large pieces
  • Mince 4 garlic cloves
  • Slice a small red onion into big pieces
  • Heat a pan/wok and add 2tsp of oil
  • Fry the onions and set them aside
  • Add the garlic to the remaining oil, stir it for few seconds without burning them
  • Toss the cut bokchoy stalks first and stor for couple of minutes
  • Toss the eggplants and stir them for couple more minutes
  • Now add the bokchoy leaves and stir until the leaves wilt a little
  • Add the soy sauce mix and give it a quick stir
  • Cover and cook for 2 to 4 minutes
  • When the eggplants are done, add the sauted onions
  • Sprinkle little sugar if you prefer and serve hot as a side
  • Some sauce in the dish is desirable so don't make it too dry
  • You dont need to add water as bok choy leaves enough water when sauteed..and thats the reason I add saute the onions and add them separately - so onions dont get all soggy
  • You may add any stir fry vegetable to this bunch..just make sure you add the hard veges first so they get a head start on getting cooked. Some suitable veges/items are Tofu, Carrots, snap peas, broccoli, zucchini
  • You may add ginger along with garlic or use it instead of garlic.

  6. We're trying this tonight. I went to school in Kodaikanal and we used to have something called dry curry. It was curry, dried, and then you would pour a pepper sauce on it - was SO delicious. Have never been able to find a recipe for it - have you heard of it?
