I love Sichuan Eggplant and I order it anytime I see it offered at a Chinese restaurant. I would make it at home if Sichuan peppers were something that were easily sourced here in T&T. They’re not impossible to get but they are pretty hard to come by. I think the supermarket on South Quay in Port Of Spain has it, I’ll go check and get back to you all on its availability there. So no Sichuan peppers, but that’s not going to stop me from making a similar recipe and nor should it stop you. If you’re like me and love eggplant/baigan then you’re always looking for new ways to prepare it. This is one such way, its simple enough and utilizes a lot of ingredients that you would already have in your crisper and pantry.
For this recipe you will need:
You can serve this up with some noodles or rice. It goes great with stir fried beef as well. Enjoy!
