    I’ll try this out. Eggplant has to be done right or I don’t like it.

    It’s not urea.. ureas comes in urine… it’s uric acid. but eggplants are low uric acid. eggplants are not beans.

    The Queen is rolling-on-the-floor-laughing-out-loud:   Itu eggplant aka terung.  Terung bukan kacang hor.  Terung is….. batang. muahaahaahhaaa…

    HaHa ! Thanks Bernard …. it’s uric acid. So it’s okay to consume eggplants then.

    wah… why hor all food seems so easy to make.. but when i try to cook time hor.. end up like need 1000 ingrediants like thar

    The Queen says:  That is why I don’t like to read from recipe books.  All my cooking I explore the ingredients myself plus my sifu is my mom.

    Razzler… no problem. It’s low in uric acid. (Technically, it’s low in purine… which turns into uric acid by our body). Hehe.

    Queen, hahahaha…. i’ve seen terung bulat-bulat one oso lah… not too unlike papayas 😉
