Sungei Merah Stories : Brinjal Soup


My grandmother Siew and Aunty Hiong used to plant a few plots of brinjals and ladies' fingers.

Grandma loved to cook these two vegetables for grandpa Tiong Kung Ping as they were his favourites.

However one dish that was truly memorable was her brinjal soup. Plain cut brinjals in a soup of garlic and perhaps a bit of ikan bilis or a bit of ern chow. But as children we could eat almost anything. She was glad that I learned to eat vegetables and especially her brinjals.

Today, we all love brinjals or egg plants, cooked in any way. Each time I see people growing brinjals I would think of Grandfather and the backyard garden that he started when he moved to the big house on the hill in Sg. Merah.Image may contain: food

I will try to re-create the Tiong Kung Ping Brinjal Soup soon.....


Mashed Brinjal Soup with Ern Chow

(Steam the brinjals and then mash well, use a bit of oil to stir fry some garlic until aromatic, add a small spoon of ern chow..and add the mashed brinjal...add water. A fragrant Ming Chiang Soup from Fujian)

Madam, I love stir-fried brinjals, and will squeal with delight at the mere sight of the dish on the dining table. I have never had brinjal soup, but I guess it must be a perfect one for hot days, as brinjals have cooling effects. I like them cooked with sambal too, so piquant, whetting the appetite. I can finish two bowls of rice with that. By the way, baked brinjals with cheese is a heavenly dish too.

Thank you Charles for your comments. Really appreciate your contributions. Will try to bake brinjals with cheese one day.
