Special Cooking Equipment Used
Step 1: First we need to make the batter for the eggplant. Add 1 cup of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a mixing bowl, then pour in about half a cup of water and mix together until you are left with a smooth lump free batter.
Step 2: Add 1 sliced eggplant to the batter, and coat all of the eggplant pieces with batter, then set aside.
Step 3: Now we need to make the salad dressing. Add 4 tbsp of lime juice, 4 tbsp of fish sauce, 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar, 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic, and 5 chopped red bird eye chillies to a mixing bowl, and mix together thoroughly.
Step 4: Then bring a saucepan of water to the boil, then add 1 sliced squid and 5 shrimp. Cook until the shrimp are pink then spoon the shrimp and squid into a bowl.
Step 5: Now bring 1/2 cup of water to the boil, then add 1/2 cup of minced pork and heat for a couple of minutes until the pork is cooked, then spoon the pork into a bowl.
Step 6: Next deep fry the eggplant in batter we made earlier until it is golden brown. Once cooked, place the eggplant on some paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
Step 7: Finally add the minced pork, shrimp and squid and 1/2 sliced red onion to the dressing we made earlier, and mix everything together. Spoon everything over the deep fried egg plant, and garnish with a boiled egg that has been quartered, and then serve and enjoy!
