Another classic yet homely dish. The eggplants and minced meat are braised in a combination of spicy bean paste and soy sauce. It then absorbs all the umami like a sponge.
Also, don’t underestimate the salted fish, as it adds another layer of aroma to the dish.
Remember to cook more white rice with this for a perfect match!
