Diposting oleh Indonesian food on Sabtu, Maret 15, 2008

2 sm Aubergines
1 Irg Spanish onion
4 x Cloves garlic
1 tbl Vegetable oil
2 tsp Chilli powder
1 slc Terasi
1 tsp Brown sugar
2 lrg Tomatoes

Method :

* This is a relish which can be used hot or cold.
* Slice the aubergine and sprinkle it with salt; leave to stand for half an hour, then rinse and dry. Cut up the tomatoes and remove the seeds.
* Crush the terasi and garlic together. Slice the onion thinly, and fry until slightly brown. Add the garlic and terasi, the sugar and the chilli powder.
* Put in the aubergine, and mix well. Add the tomatoes, cover the pan, and continue cooking gently for 5 minutes. Taste, and add salt if necessary.
* Then put the mixture into a pudding basin and steam it for 20 minutes.
* If you want this relish to be really hot-spicy hot-then take 4 green chillis, seed them and chop finely, and put them into the frying-pan at the same time as the onions. Alternatively, use dried red chillis: soak them for at least 15 minutes and put them into the mixture, whole, when everything goes into the basin for steaming.
