After a recent girls night out at The Comedy Store, our bellies full from laughing hysterically at American comedian Paul Ogata, our thoughts soon turned to the literal and filling our bellies with actual food.

These thoughts soon turned to Ubud, an Indonesian Restaurant in Sydney’s Eastern Suburb of Kingsford, which met with approval all round.

One of the restaurant’s standout dishes was the Eggplant with Chilli Sauce, a delectable array of fried eggplant topped with a rich tomato and chilli salsa.

This is my version of the popular Indonesian dish Terong Balado - an Eggplant with Chilli Sauce vegetable-dish, albeit slightly healthier.
