Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Whenever I see Cherry tomatoes in cookery shows, I would be tempted to taste it but unfortunately we don't get them in Madurai. So it has been in my to do list for long. Last month, when I went to Nilgiris, I saw a basket full of cherry tomatoes in the vegetable section. I din't even think again. I just grabbed the basket and asked the worker to weigh it out at once. I was so happy to have got it. 

When at home, I visualized so many recipes but finally settled for this simple roasted recipe which I have seen on Master chef Australia. It was in a group challenge and they served it along with bread and some meat. I just skipped the meat and served it on toasted bread. It was awesome. We loved it. it even made a nice side dish for chapathis. The preparation is quite simple. Just cut the tomatoes into halves, sprinkle spices and oil. Just bake them until done. Serve it hot sandwiched between crispy toasted bread slices.
