Eggplant fried rice is fast, easy, and delicious. To me, there is nothing more boring than plain fried rice. That’s why this recipeis so unique. The eggplant, which I’m a fan of, combined with the spices, give this dish such an incredibly unique taste. Believe me, this will be a real hit. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
The tips to cooking this recipe are as follows: First, the chili flakes are optional, but I like that little bit of heat. You can use whatever type of rice you like. You can also use as little, or as much, of the spices as you like. I always make up the rice the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. This makes things a lot easier, and the texture of the rice is a little better. You don’t want to overcook the eggplant as it will be too mushy and soggy. It should be just to the point where a fork or knife can penetrate it without too much effort.
