Cooking tips: It would be better to choose the round eggplant. Before deep frying the eggplant, add a little dry starch for the convenience of covering it with egg liquid. Deep fry the eggplant in the pan so the eggplant covered with salty egg liquid can absorb less oil. Add a little oil when frying the tomato paste, so the lycopene is easily absorbed. Finally add some green soya beans to stir fry for decoration.
