AFF Korea - Eggplant Side Dish (Gaji-Namul)

Eggplant. One of my favourite vegetable. But I have only limited choice on how to serve it. Everytime it's either stir fry with minced meat, or grill and cook with sambal (chilli paste)
So excited when I saw a simple dish using eggplant. And it's so easy to prepare, too

Recipe is from HERE
What you need:
3 medium size eggplant
2 1/2 tbsp light soya sauce
1 stalk of spring onion, chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp of hot pepper flakes (I used 1/2 tsp in powder form - not as spicy)
  1. Cut 3 medium sized Asian eggplants into 3 pieces. Then cut each piece in half lengthwise
  2. Steam the pieces of eggplant inside. Bring to a boil for 15 minutes over high heat
  3. Turn  the heat off and move the cooked eggplant to a bowl. Set it aside to cool down
  4. After the eggplant has cooled, drain the liquid. Tear each piece of eggplant lengthwise with your fingers, and put the strips into a large bowl
  5. Add in all seasonings and mix together using your hands
  6. Serve with rice
