I love smell and taste of smoky eggplant! Absolutely declicious and divine! Chinese eggplant in garlic sauce is such a beautiful dish that combines smoky eggplant with heat of chilies and sweet taste of carmalized garlic sauce. Its like a party in your mouth! Not to metion it’s less than 350 calories!


2 Cups of evenly chopped Eggplant (Aubergine)  – 40 Calories

1 Teaspoon of  oil – 40 Calories

3 Scallions – 15 Calories

2 Chopped red chilies – 20 Calories

1 Tablespoon finely chopped garlic – 5 Calories

1 Tablespoon finely chopped ginger – 2 Calories

1 Tablespoon of soy sauce – 9 Calories

1 Tablespoon of sriracha sauce – 5 Calories

1 Tableapoon spicy bean paste – 10 Calories

1 cup cooked rice – 2oo Calories

Total Calories : 346 Calories


In a pan spray some cooking spray. Add the eggplant and let it sear until brown on all sides. You can lower the heat if it looks like they’re starting to burn. You want to cook the eggplant until they start to get soft and have a nice sear. Set all the cooked eggplant aside on a plate.Slice the scallions and separate green and white portions. 

Set the heat to medium high and add teaspoon of oil to the wok. Then add the ginger and garlic and cook for a minute. Stir in the red chili peppers and add the eggplant in, along with soy sauce, sriracha sauce, bean paste and the white parts of the scallions. Stir-fry everything together for another 2 minutes, making sure everything is well-combined.

Toss in the rest of the scallions and stir-fry for another 20 seconds. Plate and serve immediately with white rice.

Bonjour, my name is Drishty Ghadia. I was born and raised in India, where in a Vegetarian household I developed my love for cooking spicy food. Then later on moving to and spending 10+ years in the US, I found myself dumbstruck and in love with the high sugar, high fructose corn syrup, high cholesterol - yet oh so addictive food. I mean have you ever gone through an entire menu of The Cheese Cake Factory?

In the past few years I have jumped countries yet again and now I live in the land of Fish and Chips and Yorkshire Pudding - the lovely UK. I love to travel and I believe that you have to taste a culture to understand it. Italian, Spanish, Chinese, French, Swiss, German, Moroccan, Japanese, Malaysian, Sri Lankan, Indian, Peruvian, South African, Kenyan, Middle Eastern - you name it, I've eaten it and tried to make some vegetarian fusion version of it in my kitchen.

Food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. I will be recreating some original and some fusion recipes from my travels in my kitchen and will share them with you here. Hope you enjoy them!
