Ayurveda suggests that eggplant has a sweet taste, light to digest, and heating in nature. It improves digestion, maintains heart health, and also helps to promote the quality and quantity of sperm.
As per Ayurveda, it is more suitable for a Vata & Kapha person and may cause trouble to a Pitta person leading to hyperacidity or other Pitta issues. But, it does not mean that a Pitta person can never have eggplant. They can also enjoy it when cooked with less oil and in moderation.
