Eggplant and Tofu in Spicy Oyster sauce

I found this meatless recipe on a magazine.The first time I tried this recipe, it became my favorite. This is also my favorite packed lunch for work and my officemates loves it too. 
Now let me share this 10 minute recipe. If you love tofu, I am so sure you will like this recipe too. :-)

You will need;

4 pcs eggplant cut 1" long then cut in half
300 grams firm tofu cut in cubes(I used masoya Japanese firm tofu)
half cup oyster sauce
1 tbs sugar
liquid seasoning
1/2 cup water
Chopped chillies (I used 2)
oil for frying (I used olive oil)

Then what you will do;
  • Fry the eggplant then place in a paper towel to remove excess oil and set aside.
  • On the same pan, place the oyster sauce, liquid seasoning, sugar and water. Simmer for a minute.
  • Throw in the cubed tofu. Simmer until the tofu until it'll soak up the flavors. If you think, the sauce is running dry, do add more so as not to burn the sauce. 
  • Keep simmering until the sauce thickens. Add the fried eggplants. Mix and turn of heat.
Serve hot.
