Sambal Eggplant with Minced Beef

We normally call it EGGPLANT, but aubergine and brinjal are also common ways to call this awesome vegetable. Super simple and really tasty, many of us growing up would have had this dish one way or another.
Simply cut the eggplant into batons, deep fry them, and prepare the minced beef sauce. This can be done under 30 minutes; one recipe for the working individual looking to whip up a quick meal. Perfect with a piping hot bowl of rice!
