What is a number?

Chisinchi is a traditional dish of national Chinese cuisine, which is prepared from three main ingredients: eggplant, pepper and potatoes. The name translates roughly as "three freshness of the earth" and reflects the main essence. Indeed, the main components are the vegetables that the land provides. And, of course, the dish is fresh and tasty.

How to cook?

How to cook a Chinese dish? This is quite simple, and two methods are discussed below.

Method one

To make numbers at home, prepare:

  • one rather large eggplant;
  • two bell peppers;
  • three large or four medium potatoes;
  • one small carrot;
  • 60-70 ml of soy sauce;
  • a quarter of a glass of water;
  • two garlic cloves;
  • hl starch;
  • a small piece of fresh or a pinch of ground ginger;
  • frying oil.


  1. First you need to prepare some ingredients. Eggplant cut into slices. If the skin is dense, you can cut it to make the dish more tender. And if you want to remove excessive bitterness, then sprinkle the pieces with salt and leave for fifteen minutes, and then wash them.
  2. Peel and chop the onions, chop the carrots after pre-washing too (preferably with a knife, not a rake, so that it feels among other components and refreshes the dish with a bright color). Fry these vegetables in oil until golden, put in a baking sheet or other container (not necessarily heat-resistant).
  3. Pepper seeds and cores, cut into fairly large pieces and fry too, using the same oil remaining in the pan. Put the finished ingredient on the onions with carrots.
  4. Go to the eggplant. They need to fry before the acquisition of softness and darkening, but still they should not fall apart. Next, add chopped garlic. These ingredients also need to put in a container.
  5. Cut the potatoes into slices or small pieces, and fry until golden in the pan with butter, and then spread on eggplant.
  6. Cook the sauce.Mix the water with the soy sauce and place on the stove. Leave a small amount of water to dissolve the starch in it. Next, pour the starch liquid in a thin stream into the heated, but not yet boiling, mixture on the stove. Bring sauce to a boil, add ginger and turn off the heat in a minute.
  7. Just boil the sauce, pour all the ingredients in a separate container and leave for twenty minutes so that they soak, soften and cool a little. Then immediately submit the numbers.
