Chinese Aubergine Stew

This delicious fragrant stew is healthy and vegan friendly.

Best served over fluffy rice, topped with chopped coriander and sliced red chilli.


3 tbsp olive or cooking oil

3 red chillies, deseeded and chopped

3cm fresh ginger

4 star anise

1 tbsp brown sugar

100ml soy sauce

1 tsp cinnamon

600ml vegetable stock

5 kaffir lime leaves

3 aubergines, cut in to wedges

3 tbsp cornflour

Salt and pepper (to taste)

Suitable for: Pressure King Pro 5L 12-in-1 Pressure Cooker

The Method

Select the BROWNING function, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the chillies, ginger and star anise and stir regularly for ~2 minutes until they start to become fragrant.

Add the sugar and soy sauce and stir for a further minute.

Add the rest of the ingredients apart from the cornflour and stir to combine.

Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the STEW function and adjust the time to 8 minutes.

When the program has finished press CANCEL. For this recipe we recommend the QUICK RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid.

In a cup or bowl, combine the cornflour with some water, and mix until you have a thick paste, then add this to the stew.

Select the BROWNING function and stir to thicken the sauce for ~3 minutes. While you stir, scoop each star anise from the top before serving.
