Grilled Eggplant Salad

Was browsing the net and found this blog, what a the food on the blog..I love Chinese, Thai, Japanese , western and Malay food, of course.. :P Th blog is named 3 hungry tummies - so very true..the food from this blog makes me really hungry.

Made these together with some other Thai dishes from same blog which I will put into this blog.

The recipe is delicious and healthy see the actual recipe here

The ingredients as follows:

5 Asian eggplants*, grilled or roasted

3 shallots, sliced

2 spring onions, chopped

1/2 cup of mint

1/2 cup of coriander

1 red chili, julienne

3 tbs of dried shrimps, pounded

3 tbs of fish sauce

3 tbs of lime juice

2 tbs of roasted chili flakes

3 steamed eggs or soft boiled eggs (optional)

* If you are able to get the light green Thai eggplants, better still.


Prick eggplants a few times with a knife and roast it in a hot oven til soften and charred. Place eggplants in a bowl and cover with cling films, this will help peeling a lot easier later on.Peel eggplants and cut into slivers.

Pound dried shrimps in a mortal and pestle or a spice grinder

Have everything ready and it is ready to assemble.Place everything in a large bowl and mix well, check for seasonings.

I also added some steamed eggs to the dish as per the author proposed.
