    riffraff's Note:

    I ordered this at my favorite Thai restaurant and then went in search of the recipe that tasted most like it. Here you go. I serve this on basmati rice. You can use either regular eggplant or the long thin Asian eggplants. I think the restaurant used little green ones that I have seen at the Asian market.

      This was amazing. It tastes exactly like the Basil Eggplant I order when I go out to eat. I used two American eggplants and it worked well. Although, I think I will reduce the water next time because it didn't all evaporate and I was stuck draining it and filtering it for the garlic and chilies. I used one Tbsp of fish sauce and one of soya sauce because I don't like a strong fish sauce taste. Also, I kept the seeds for one chili but discarded the seeds for the other so it wouldn't be ridiculously spicy.

      Really yummy! I used homegrown Japanese eggplants and basil, so it was all very fresh. The sauce was delicious. I ended up combining the eggplant with a lightly fried tofu dish that I was also making, and they combined beautifully. Thanks, riffraff!
