Terung Goreng Sambal - Fried Eggplant with Sambal

fried eggplant sambal terungFried eggplant is such a simple dish but delicious, just the way I like my food to be. Maybe not very healthy but I just can't help it if I like fried stuff. That is why I named my blog, Salt N Turmeric. I usually just fry the eggplant and eat them with warm white rice but this time I 'upped' it a little bit by adding some Sambal.


Fried Eggplant with Sambal

1 eggplant, cut or sliced
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp turmeric powder
Oil for deep-frying
Sambal

1. Coat cut/sliced eggplant well with salt and turmeric powder.

2. Heat oil on medium high and fry the eggplant until brown. Turning once.

3. Put them on a plate and pour some sambal on top. Served with a warm plate of white rice.

Sedap tu. A dash of salt will do for me without the ketchup.

I don't like eggplant (brinjal!!) but my bf loves them.. everyone loves them in them, esp here in the middle east..which means this will be a great asian variation for him to try. :D

Oh my god, terong goreng sambal, MY FAVOURITE!!! Why have I only found your blog just now?? So much catching up to do... so many delicious recipes to take down... I love you!

Olga said...

I've had eggplant fries one time and absolutely loved them!

Sometimes I'm sad I don't have a fryer at home.

Kitchen Flavours said...

Simple and easy to make recipes always tops my charts.... This looks yummy 4 tummy....

Salt N Turmeric said...

Jesse, welcome! Dont worry, take your time. The recipes not going anywhere. lol.

Olga, welcome. Truth is, I dont own a fryer either. Used to but I threw it out. I find it a nuisance and easier to just use a pan or pot depending on what I'm frying.

Lubna, I just love easy and yummy recipes. :)

Maya said...

A plate of this paired with some mellow dhall would be wonderful!

Jun @ IndoChine Kitchen said...

i sometimes grill the brinjal and squeeze some limau kasturi on it and of course tabur sliced cili padi and shallots too....

Salt N Turmeric said...

Maya, i still takde confident nak buat dhal so unless i go to an indian restaurant, tak makan lah I.

Jun, how very true! lol. Also to familiarise people not from our region about the word sambal. ;)

Adel, welcome. Can you smell belacan from the sambal? ;)

Tigerfish, :)

Lyana, eh jgnlan makan gajah. Kesian dia. :P

Anis, haha. Satu belanga kot? Lama cuti kat sabah ye?

I always forget about egg plant. I enjoy it, but it never finds itself on my grocery list. This has to change because this dish looks delicious!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Hi Mike, welcome to my blog. Im always on the lookout for eggplant but I do know what you mean. ;)

Queen Mother said...

This is actually a Javanese signature dish. Maybe too many javanese in malaysia (especially in Johor) now that its become Malaysian LOL

Sorry..am javanese on both sides so I grew up with TERONG masak sambal and Pecel Lele.

Its a bit weird to be puting the tumeric though (we just simplay fry them as it is) and no salt during frying as the sambal itself will be enough salt.

The sambal here looks more like chilli sauce..not too familiar with the looks. But again, maybe this is your fussion version ;)

Salt N Turmeric said...

QM, really? I thought the dish belongs to homo sapien. In case you have forgotten, this is my blog and my cooking. You may think frying it with salt and turmeric is weird but I think frying them without is even weirder. But then again, we all cook however WE like the food the taste like. I certainly did not cook to get your approval.
