STIR FRY EGGPLANT WITH GLASS NOODLES

 Surprisingly good dish that can be eaten with rice or just as a fried noodle dish.  If serving as noodles, just add more glass noodles and water.

The addition of curry leaves, adds extra fragrance and aroma to this dish.  The eggplant is soft and sweet, goes well with the savoury taste of the noodles.  The addition of crispy fried soya kelp provides a different texture to this dish.  Awesome.
