COOKING CLASS (20 nov 2020)

Chicken with Spring onion, Ginger and Aubergine (eggplant)

Ingredients

  • 950g aubergine (about 3) cut into 3cm dice

  • 30ml/2 tbsp oil

  • 250g 2-3 bunches of spring onions

  • 7cm piece ginger peeled and julienned (cut into

    matchsticks)

  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1 green chilli

  • 500g chicken mince (or alternative)

  • 3 tbsp mirin

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp kecap manis

  • 1.5 tbsp rice vinegar

  • 15g coriander chopped

  • 60g peanuts

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

  • Salt

What you need

  • Bowl
  • Steamer/colander
  • Saucepan with Lid
  • Large Saute Pan
  • Cooking knives
  • Chopping board

Steps

  1. Place the aubergine in a bowl with 11⁄2 tsp salt. Mix well, then transfer to a steamer (or a colander). Fill a large saucepan with water to a depth of 3cm. Bring to the boil, then place the steamer (or colander) on the pan and cover with the lid or seal well with tinfoil to prevent the  steam escaping. Reduce the temperature to medium-high and steam for 12 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, pour 1tbsp oil into a large sauté pan on high heat. Add spring onion, ginger,  garlic and chilli and fry for 5 minutes, stirring 3 tbsp mirin often, until the garlic starts to colour. Transfer to a bowl. Add the remaining oil to the pan, add the mince and fry, breaking up lumps, for 3 minutes. Add the mirin, soy sauce, keçap manis, sesame oil, vinegar and 1⁄2 tsp salt. Cook for 2 minutes, then return the spring onion mixture to the pan. Cook for 1 minute, then remove from the heat – there should be plenty of liquid – and stir in 10g of the coriander and the peanuts.
  3. Serve with the eggplant, sesame seeds and remaining coriander.
