Serves 4
Total Time
35 Minutes
1 large potato, peeled and cut into medium chucks
1 aubergine, cut into medium chucks
5cm piece of ginger, peeled & minced
4 cloves of garlic, peeled & minced
3 spring onions, whites cut into 2-inch pieces, and greens sliced finely
2 peppers (1 green and 1 red pepper), deseeded and cut into large rough squares
100ml of vegetable oil
1 tbsp of Shaoxing rice wine
2 tbsp of Lee Kum Kee Premium Oyster Sauce
1 tsp of Lee Kum Kee Premium Dark Soy sauce
1 tbsp of Lee Kum Kee Premium Light Soy sauce
0.5 tsp of sugar
200ml of water
A small handful of coriander, roughly chopped
Lee Kum Kee Chiu Chow Chilli Oil to serve (optional)
Steamed rice
Step 1

Heat 100ml of cooking oil in a wok until shimmering but not smoking. Add the potato pieces and fry on a medium high heat until browned on each side (about 4 minutes). Remove to a plate with a piece of kitchen roll.

Step 2

Repeat with the aubergine, frying until brown (about 3 minutes) and remove to a plate. At this point the aubergine may have soaked up all the oil, in which case add some back into the wok.

Step 3

Add the ginger, garlic and spring onion whites and stir fry until fragrant, then add the peppers.

Step 4

Add the Shaoxing rice wine and keep stir frying for a minute, then add the potatoes and Lee Kum Kee Premium Oyster Sauce, soy sauces, sugar and 200ml of water. Cook for 5 minutes with the lid on, on a medium heat.

Step 5

Add the aubergines and stir again, cooking for a further 6 minutes on a lower heat with the lid on, stirring occasionally. If it is looking dry, add 25ml of water each time. The sauce should be glossy and thick, not watery.

Step 6

When the potatoes are tender, remove from the heat and garnish with the spring onion greens and coriander. Serve with Chiu Chow Chilli Oil (optional) and steamed rice.
