    Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan and add the eggplant and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until lightly golden and tender. Add the onion, water and tomato paste and cook, loosely covered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until eggplant is very tender and liquid evaporates. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
