Are you having problems with vegetables for the little one? If your answer is yes, try this. A recipe from a friend of mine. Funny how when we see each other online (Facebook it is!), we end up talking about food. It’s actually the second recipe I tried from him; the first being Thai Basil Fried Rice. Also YUM.

Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. L’s posted Youtube clip. It is so easy to follow. :-)

Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 large ggplant, thinly sliced
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  1. Combine beaten egg and soy sauce with a dash of salt in a bowl.
  2. In a plate, combine Parmesan cheese and sesame seeds.
  3. Position your preparation plates next to the frying pan in this order: the pan on far left (as my kitchen dictates), next to it is the plate of cheese and sesame seeds mixture, then the egg mixture, then the flour on far right.
  4. Heat oil in a deep fryer over medium-high heat.
  5. Coat slice of eggplant with flour, then dip in the egg mixture, and then coat with sesame seeds and cheese mixture on both sides. Fry in batches for about 4 to 5 minutes or until browned. Drain on paper towels.
Ingredients for the sauce: Juice of half a lemon 1 tbsp Minced garlic 2 to 4 tbsp Mayonnaise A dash of salt Combine all of the above ingredients and serve with breaded eggplant. I also had Tuscan beef sausages on the sides.

I am not a professional cook. My only claim to having a culinary background is a short stint as my dad’s teen ‘sous chef’ in his carinderia ages ago. Dad ran small eateries since I was a young kid - serving standard ‘turo-turo’ food ranging from the likes of menudo, adobo, pritong isda, dinuguan, binagoongan, bopis, munggo, pinakbet and giniling to merienda fares like goto, ginataan, pancit bihon, halu-halo and saging con yelo.

My father, a farmer in his hometown before working his way to becoming an accountant, definitely influenced my cooking in a lot of ways than I thought. My siblings and I were raised in a backyard full of fruit trees and vegetable garden. We spent weekends and the summer breaks running around with ducks, chickens, goats and pigs. I had wonderful memories of gathering eggs, butchering chickens, selling vegetables and the sweet aroma of preserved fruits. But my love for art led me to a degree in Architecture. Just few months after getting my license, I went abroad and lived independently at age 23. Definitely no maid, no cook, and a totally different food culture. Along the way I met lots of friends and spent what seemed a lifetime learning new tricks and recipes.

Now living in Auckland, I am a work-from-home mum who juggles time between work, fun and family - in pursuit of work-life balance. No matter how busy I am, I love the idea of cooking for my family. My blog chronicles home cooking greatly influenced by life outside my home country from Southeast Asia to Beijing and Auckland. And most of the time, being busy also means easy (sometimes quick), affordable meals.
