This easy-to-make vegetable dish is a delectable accompaniment to any main course. If you substitute light soy for the fish sauce, it is then made suitable for vegetarians.
In a saucepan, bring the shallots, fish or light soy sauce, lime juice and sugar to a simmer. Pour this mixture over the aubergines. Mix well, add the coriander leaves and serve at once.
