Madhur Jaffrey's Far Eastern Cookery: Vietnamese Eggplant

Madhur Jaffrey's BBC/PBS cooking show from 1989 found her all over Asia collecting and trying out recipes, such as this easy, quick and tasty southern Vietnamese Eggplant with Ground Pork and Nuoc Cham (chili dressing with lime, sugar, and fish sauce).

I have made this dish with ground pork.

Now there is the vegetarian version with soy meat, leaving out the fish sauce and substituting soy for fish sauce for the (vegetarian version of) nuoc cham.

Both versions of the dish are really tasty and quick.

Enjoy and let me have a feedback !
