Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in heavy skillet, add celery and onions and cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently for 10 minutes until celery and onions are soft and lightly colored. With slotted spoon transfer to bowl. Pour remaining 1/4 cup oil in skillet and over high heat sauté the eggplant in it, stirring and turning about 8 minutes until they are lightly browned.
