Roasted eggplant and tomato dip

Today's spot light is on our very own sailu of sailu's food. I had got this recipe from her blog a few months back and this dish has become a favourite at our place. The flavours of the roasted brinjal and the tomatoes blend together beautifully making this chutney absolutely irresistable. This curry is a breeze to prepare and it can be had with either rice rotis or as a dip. Now is this another version of babaghanoush???
