I posted this on request. I've never made this myself, but have eaten this many times as my grandma loves to cook this. It's wonderful served over steamed rice.

OMG!! I am absolutely speechless when I first tasted it out of the wok! This is the best I've tasted thus far (not including restaurants made food). HIGHLY recommended for anyone who has an eggplant to experiment. A+++++++++
