Chinese Di San Xian

Aubergine Chinese
 I can’t decide what to call this dish and let me tell you why. I had a notion earlier to go on a little Chinese culinary journey. I’m not usually mad about Chinese food but I went ahead and started searching through recipes till I found this one, Di San Xian. To my surprise I found it is very similar to a Mauritian dish called Brinjel Pomme de Terre Toufe.  I’ve never used a wok to make anything except stir fries, have you? Well I thought I’d give the Chinese Di San Xian a try but when I started making it I found myself using the Mauritian method. Auto Pilot. Unfortunately I was nearly finished before I realized the Chinese Di San Xian has soy sauce in it. Ah well, I added it at the end anyway.
