Yesterday I finally got down to making sambal for freezing. So today, I decided to make me a sambal terung to go with my leftover kari kapitan.
This usually involves deep frying the brinjals first but now that I have an air fryer, I air fried the brinjals instead. I just simply mixed some oil with turmeric powder and tossed the brinjal pieces to coat evenly.
Then these were air fried for about 15 minutes at 180C, tossing every 5 minutes. The brinjals were nice and tender and ready to be sambal-ed.
Can you spot the caterpillar? In fact there were another two of them. The tell tale signs are always the chewed up leaves and droppings.
