Recipe By: Sushiwaka-London (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/254)
Serves 1 Prep: 15 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Aubergine 1/2
Sesame seeds as required
Vegetable oil as required
【Dengaku miso sauce】
Sugar 100g
White miso 100g
Mirin 100ml

Method

1
Put all the dengaku miso ingredients in a pan on high heat. Stir well.
2
Turn to medium heat when it boils. Keep stirring to that it doesn't burn.
3
Turn the heat off when it's close to boiling again.
4
The aubergine half should be originally cut lengthways. Now slice off the curved dome so that it will stand flat on a plate.
5
Put your knife just inside the peel all the way round the aubergine.This is to prevent it becoming too floppy as it cooks.
6
Score the aubergine in squares.
7
On the opposite skin side, score the aubergine with a few shallow diagonal lines.
8
Heat the vegetable oil 180C in a deep pan. Put in the aubergine, skin side up and fry for 2-2.5 minutes.
9
Turn it over and fry until you can pierce through with a skewer.
10
When the sauce at Step 3 has cooled, it will look sticky like in this photo.
11
Put the fried aubergine on a plate. Pour over the sweet miso dengaku sauce and sprinkle the sesame seeds down the centre to look like aubergine seeds.

Tips & Note

●If you can remember, the ratio of sugar, white miso and mirin for the sweet sauce is 1:1:1.
●Leftover sweet sauce can be kept in the fridge for 1 month, there'll be plenty of recipes you can use this for.
