Recipe By: Oshaman-bay (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/444)
Serves 2 Prep: 8 min Cook: 8 min

Ingredients

Aubergine (large) 1
Green pepper 1
Vegetable oil 1 tbsp
Sesame oil 1 tbsp
Spring onion 1/2
Noodle broth (mentsuyu) 3 tbsp
Soy sauce 3 tbsp
Sake 3 tbsp
Water 3 tbsp

Method

1
Score the aubergine skin in a criss cross to make it easy to absorb flavours.
2
Cut the aubergine in 8 vertically then in half across. Remove the pith from the green pepper and cut it vertically into 8 equal parts.
3
Put the aubergine in a bowl, sprinkle with vegetable oil and sesame oil and rub it in well with your hands. Then add the green peppers and rub with the oils.
4
Heat a frying pan and lay down the aubergine slices skin side down (no oil). Cook for 3 minutes on high heat then add the green peppers. Turn the aubergines to the right and fry for 1 minute then to the other side for another minute.
5
Add the noodle broth, soy sauce, sake, and water and reduce the moisture until one third is left. Turn over the aubergines and green peppers as you go.
6
Transfer the aubergines and green peppers to a serving dish and pour over the sauce, then sprinkle the finely chopped spring onion on top.

Tips & Note

If you don't have any noodle broth, you can use 10g of dashi stock granules boiled down in 100ml each of soy sauce and mirin, reduce it to half.
