Steamed Aubergine

Aubergine, eggplant, brinjal, whatever you call it, they all refer to the same vegetable. I have grown to love this vegetable after realising how versatile it can be used in cooking. It tastes wonderful in the French ratatouille, roasted, mashed and made into dips, seasoned and grilled over charcoal, battered and deep-fried into Japanese tempura, braised, stuffed in the Malaysian Yong Tau Fu and the list goes on.
