Arakanese Eggplant Dip

The Rakhine people of Western Myanmar love very hot spicy food and make this dip hotter than I can handle it. Therefore, although I say the chili’s are optional, it is no longer an Arakanese dip if the chilis are not added!

serves 4

  • 5-6 Japanese eggplants
  • ½ small white onion, sliced very thin and rinsed under cold water
  • 1/4 c cold pressed peanut oil
  • 2-3 hot green or red fresh chilis (optional)
