Roasted Eggplant With Miso Sauce

I may have mentioned before that eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables. Whether they are cooked in curry, sambal, as a chili bean sauce dip, or just like this, roasted with miso, they taste fantastic. You can prepare this Roasted Eggplant With Miso Sauce dish using either the regular Japanese or the Indian eggplant variety. I decided to use the latter variety as they are small and is packed full of flavors. The size of this variety also allows you to serve them whole, if you wish.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
