This recipe makes use of chinese eggplant, which is deep-purple in color, and long in shape. Chinese eggplants tend to have a softer bite. There are other kinds of eggplants which may be round or oval in shape, with a firmer bite.

In restaurants they often deep-fry the eggplant first to retain the vibrant purple color. Deep-frying also helps to prevent the eggplant from turning mushy when cooked. As I do not like to deep-fry too often at home, I found pan-frying (with less oil) to be a good compromise here – it enjoys some of the benefits of deep-frying but without the excessive oil.
