Easy Sambal Terong Balado | Spicy Balado Eggplant | spicy vegetable stirfry
Today we’re making an easy vegetable dish – sambal terong balado. Or spicy, Indonesian style Balado Eggplant. This is one of my favourite ways of cooking vegetables and this is so good over rice.
Eggplant is most commonly used but you most certainly can use other veggies too and I’ll also show a version of that in this video too.
The eggplants are typically fried in oil first, but I much prefer steaming it. You get the same taste and texture as if it were fried… and I get to save on oil. Oil is more expensive than water yo.
