To begin, remove the tops of the aubergines and cut them in half lengthways

Add the oil to a hot wok and lightly fry off the chilli bean paste, black bean sauce, dried chillies and chilli flakes – you want to get the oil to change into a glowing red colour
3
Add the aubergine halves and lightly fry before adding the Shaoxing wine, red vinegar, stock and sugar
  • 2 tbsp of Shaoxing wine
  • 2 tbsp of Chinese red vinegar
  • 100ml of vegetable stock, (or chicken stock)
  • 4 tsp sugar
4
Cook until the sauce has reduced slightly and the aubergine is tender
