Every time that I go home to visit, I ask my mother to rpepare this for me. It is pretty eas, but requires attention on the stove so its not so often that I prepare it. And anyway, mama's food is always better :) Goes well with fish, rice, and of course challah! Healthy salad for a ricecake snack, as well. Enjoy

1 eggplant, peeled and cubed (or wash it and leave it unpeeled)
2 medium onion, diced
1/2 green pepper (substitute with any pepper you may have wilting in your fridge), diced small
1/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
spices to your taste (my mother doesnt do this)

Saute onions in deep frying pan, (try to be skimpy with the oil) until golden.
Add peppers and saute for 5 minutes.
Throw in eggplant, and mix, let stew for 3 minutes
Pour in ketchup and water
Mix well,
Keep on low-medium fire, until brown and soft (about an hour) mix every 10 minutes
