Eggplant, Fijian Style

This is a version of a dish we enjoyed very much while we were in Fiji. I have just modified it to make it a little healthier. Provided you follow the instructions below the dish uses very little oil for frying. This dish makes a lovely side, especially to fresh vegetables, roast potato or of course taro. Serves 6-8


2 medium eggplant, sliced
1 cup Besan flour (Chickpea)
1 cup water
1 Tbs olive oil plus oil for frying
21/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
1 400ml can coconut cream
1 small onion, sliced
1 fresh tomato, sliced


1. Soak the eggplant slices in a bowl of salted water for about 20 minutes and drain. (not essential but recommended especially if the eggplants are a little green) 
2. Whisk together the besan flour, water, 1 Tbs olive oil and 2 tsp salt to form a batter
3. Heat a large non stick fry pan to a medium heat. (the fry pan must have a lid)
4. Dip the slices of eggplant in the batter and place in slightly oiled pan. 


5. Cover with the lid and leave for a couple of minutes, until the underside is browned. 
6. Lift lid and pour 1/8th of a cup of water in spaces between eggplant and cover immediately. 
7. Leave until all water absorbed, then drizzle a very small amount of oil on the top of the eggplant slices and flip them. 
8. Repeat  steps 5 to 7 for the other side of the eggplant slices. The eggplant inside the batter should be tender and cooked and the batter surrounding it browned.
9. Repeat steps 4 to 8 until all eggplant is cooked


10.Layer eggplant in a medium baking dish with the onion slices

11. Mix 1/2 tsp salt into coconut cream and pour over eggplant
12. decorate with tomato slices

 13. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 30-40 minutes.

  4. What is the difference between pure water purification and other forms of water purification?
    Previously used filters used the structure of a sieve filter with a small size to prevent contamination, but its limitation was the inability to remove the toxic components, substances This is because the molecular structure of the baby is too small to produce a pure water source. These filters only help to purify the large scale before the RO membrane treatment.

  9. The concept of cheap should be properly understood that the price of the product commensurate with the quality of the product. A product of the brand X is 200,000 VND, bringing comfort to customers, and the durability up to 1-2 years, it will certainly cheaper than the product of brand Y is priced at 100,000 VND only been a few months. In addition to the easy-to-see value, the X product offers invisible values ​​such as comfort, style and user-friendliness. Then compare the two products X and Y, you find the product cheaper? Definitely X right?
