Heat oil in a skillet over medium low heat. Fry red chile until it darkens. Add five spice powder and fry until the spices start to crackle. Add onion and fry until it is a rich brown, stir constantly. Add green chile, turmeric, salt and sugar. Add water and bring to a boil. Add eggplant and lower the heat slightly. Cover and simmer until the eggplant is soft.
