Heat oil in a suitable plan and add the onions and minced ginger.
Stir fry for a few minutes till the onions turn slightly brown.
Add the chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, chilly powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala/spice powder, pepper and salt and simmer till the tomatoes turn pulpy and the oil separates from the mixture.

Cook covered on low heat till the egg plants turn to pulp.
Remove from heat and mash the cooked eggplants to get a pulp.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
