Pan Fried White Aubergines


I saw some white aubergines at Jusco and immediately got interested with this albino version of what is usually dark purple.


And what was the outcome? I really loved the flavour of this aubergine. It's much creamier than the purple variety and the flavour really shines through with just simple panfrying and doused with some light soy sauce.

  3. Jess Kitchen,
    I was intrigued with the colour too :)




    Jasmine,
    Yeah, aubergines are the same as eggplants.




    WyYv,
    It's creamy and nutty. Nicer compared to the purples ones.

  5. Yes, I have seen these variety but didn't buy it cos my boys don't like brinjals. Maybe I should get one piece just to try.

  6. I've never seen these before...maybe ppl in Klang are more conservative (I feel from many aspects, not only taste-buds). I tried to find those butternut squash that you introduced, but in vain leh...

  7. NEL,
    These albino ones were only seen not too long ago here. Maybe one day you'll get them there




    Jeannie,
    One piece should not a big problem to finish :)





    Meldylocks,
    As butternut squash is somethng like a pumpkin, and the one I bought is Australian, you have to wait til the next southern hemishere autumn, probably. But even here, you can get it, if you're lucky, those long necked pumpkins, are actually butternut squash.

  11. Wow! I've never seen white aubergines before! And they sound delicious too =D Wish we could get them here! You know what? They sort of look like oysters.....

  12. Jescel,
    Haha, plantains will have green skins and come in a bunch. Thanks, and hope you come again.




    Von,
    Yeah, now that you mention it, they do look like oysters.

  13. Thanks for sharing, Wendy! Now I know, just normal pan fried with light soya sauce will be nice. Otherwise, I'll probably end up cooking it the usual way - with ground dried shrimps!
