  1. Put the rice into a medium lidded saucepan and pour over 350ml boiling water from the kettle. Bring to the boil, stir, cover with the lid and cook over low heat, swirling the pan occasionally, for 10 mins. Leave the lid on, take off of the heat and set aside for 5 mins to finish steaming.
  2. Heat a frying pan with no oil over high heat. Dry fry the aubergine in batches until all of the pieces are browned, about 3 mins, lifting out of the pan after each batch.
  3. Reduce the heat on the pan, add the oil and cook the garlic for 1 min.
  4. Add the aubergine back to the pan along with 100ml water, the soy sauce, honey and crushed chilli flakes. Bubble for 3-5 mins until the sauce is reduced and sticky.
  5. Meanwhile cook the sweetcorn in the microwave or according to pack instructions.
  6. To serve, divide the rice between plates, add the sweetcorn to one side and the sticky aubergine to the other. Scatter the sliced spring onions over before serving.
