Chinese Crispy Fried Stuffed Eggplants 炸香酥酿茄子

I saw a crispy fried eggplant photo shared by Nami Just One Cookbook in her Instagram, she had this dish in a Chinese restaurant. I know it must be very delicious, as I always prefer eggplant to be deep fried. So I created this recipe and it was well received by my family, even my kids not fancy with eggplant, also gave thumbs up.

Love the taste of the sweet sauce that I mix and match, sour,salty and sweet, perfectly matched with this crispy fried stuffed eggplants.

Un plat comme j'aimerai beaucoup en manger.
Je serai très heureuse de te rencontrer à Paris, même si mon anglais est très mauvais. J'espère que tu parles un peu français.
Si tu es à Paris le 12 avril, il va y avoir une journée blogueurs.
