Di San Xian 'Earth Three Fresh'

Di San Xian (made from pepper, aubergine and potato) is one of the most popular Northern Chinese recipes
One of the most common dishes in Northern China

In response to popular demand, we’ve produced this recipe for ‘Di San Xian’, one of the most popular Chinese dishes around.

Ingredients: 1 potato, 2 aubergines, 1 green pepper, oil, soy sauce, sugar, salt, spring onion, garlic, bit of cornflour (or potato starch).

1) Cut potato, aubergine (eggplant) into medium sized cubes, tear green pepper into squares.

2) Heat a fair bit of oil and fry the potato until golden. Remove it from the oil. Add the aubergine to the oil, fry until golden, add the pepper and fry a bit longer. Remove.

3) Use a bit of oil to gently fry the spring onion and garlic, then add all the other ingredients (including potato, pepper, eggplant).

4) Add a small amount (~100ml) of hot water and boil it off, repeat the process until done (you’re probably doing about the last 20% of the cooking this way)
