Remove and let them cool. when ready to handle, scoop the flesh away from the skin. discard the skin and stems; chop the eggplant flesh coarsely.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and sauté over medium heat until golden, then add the minced chili and sauté for another minute or two.
- Add the chopped eggplant, the diced tomatoes, the spices, and sugar. Stir well and cook over medium-low heat, covered, for 10 minutes.
- Season to taste with salt and remove from heat. Stir in the chopped cilantro and serve.
- Note: If you are not inclined to use fresh chiles, simply season the dish to taste with another spicy seasoning like Thai red curry paste or hot red pepper flakes.
- VARIATION: To turn this into a delicious main dish, add a 15- to 16-ounce can chickpeas (drained and rinsed) and serve over a hot cooked grain of your choice (couscous, quinoa, or brown basmati rice). Also WW pasta of choice.
