Wash and dry the baby eggplants. Make 2 vertical cross slits going almost ¾th way down but not cutting the eggplant into pieces. Stuff the coriander-cumin powder in the eggplants, about ¼ teaspoon in each. Sprinkle the eggplants with some salt inside the slits and on the outside. Make a vertical slit in the green chilies.
Heat a medium pan on medium-high heat. Add oil and then line up the eggplants, whole garlic cloves and green chilies. Sprinkle the turmeric and any leftover coriander-cumin power on the eggplants. Cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes on low-medium heat.
Gently turn the eggplant and stir all the ingredients together. Cook for another 5 minutes. Check the eggplant on all the sides to make sure they are cooked through and soft on all sides. Depending on the size of the eggplant it make take a few minutes more or less for the eggplant to be fully done. Garlic and the green chillies should also be nicely roasted. Turn the heat off.
