1. Prepare the ginger-garlic paste. Then cut the eggplants: Starting at the bottom, make a deep cross-cut toward the stem, stopping about 1/4 inch from the stem. Keep the stem intact. (You should be able to pick up each eggplant by the stem.)
2. In a small bowl, mix together the coriander, fennel, cumin, fenugreek, pomegranate seeds, mango powder, cayenne pepper, turmeric, and salt. Fill each eggplant with about 1/2 teaspoon of the spice mixture, making sure that the cut surfaces are covered. Save leftover spices.
3. Heat the oil in a large wok, preferably cast-iron, or a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the eggplants and cook, turning a few times, about 5 minutes. Then reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and cook, turning occasionally, until the eggplants are almost black and crispy on the outsides and meltingly soft inside, about 1 hour. Add the leftover spice mixture during the last 10 minutes. Mix in the cilantro, transfer to a serving dish, and serve.
