Eggplant Sambal

Eggplant (Aubergine) Sambal is a favoured dish all around South East Asia. This pretty purple chilli dish is spicy yet sweet, and in our usual SedapTV style, it’s so easy to make. And, if you’re cooking for just yourself, you can keep any left over sambal sauce, and fry it up another day in your other favourite vegetables.
