Char Grilled Tomato & Cream Salad

I like tomato in all forms, be it in curries or pizza or even Panini pesto. Recently I did this experiment - chargrilling tomatoes and serve it as a salad. It came out very well, the taste of all herbs together blended nicely with chargrilled tomatoes. This is a must have item in a get together. Try it out all tomato lovers.
Tomato Salad 002
2 medium sized vine tomatoes
1 garlic clove finely chopped
1 green chilli finely chopped
1 tsp. red chilli flakes
1 tsp. black pepper powder
1 tsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. rosemary finely chopped
1 tsp. parsley finely chopped
1 tsp. sugar
Salt to taste
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. fresh cream (optional)

  1. Chop tomatoes into wedges. In a flat glass bowl, add 2 tsp. olive oil, chopped garlic and green chilli, vinegar, red chilli flakes, black pepper, little salt.
  2. Mix well and to this add chopped tomatoes. Gently toss it so that tomatoes get covered with dressing.
  3. Keep the dressing glass bowl untouched for 15 minutes so that flavours blend well in tomato.
  4. Heat a chargrill pan or metal tawa on medium heat. Transfer the marinated tomatoes along with dressing.
  5. Cook for 4 minutes or until tomatoes are just tender. Keep turning tomatoes gently with tongs.
  6. Bring it off flame and at this point, drizzle the finely chopped parsley, rosemary, oregano.
  7. Transfer it to the serving dish and garnish with a blob of fresh cream.
  8. Serve as a side dish with any Italian cuisine.
