Eggplant with Hot Garlic Sauce

At the restaurant we serve eggplant caponata on the menu. I love eggplant caponata!! It is a mixture of roasted or deep-fried eggplant with onions, tomatoes, spices, sugar, and vinegar. The taste should have a sweet and sour note. Garnished with raisins and pine nuts. It is truly a gift from Italy.

Also, eggplant is in the season now. So, I was inspired by both the season and the restaurant.

This dish can be found in Beijing and in western China, but I made it more Sichuan by adding chili peppers. Especially, since my father’s family is from Sichuan.
