  2. Using the same frying pan, fry the eggplants with 2 tbsp olive oil on both sides half-cooked and set aside.
  3. Heat another tbsp of olive oil and fry the chopped garlic until fragrant then add a can of dice tomato, chopped fresh basil, cracked black pepper, and little salt.  Simmer until the liquid reduces a little bit.
