Roasted Eggplant Dip

Roasted Eggplant Dip: Roasted and spiced eggplant served as a chilled dip and makes a nice and delicious snack dip for some pita chips. I adapted the recipe from here and found it very delicious. The fire-roasted eggplants gave this extra smoky flavours to this refreshing dip. The original recipe suggested to use black sesame tahini but I had only white sesame tahini on hand which I used. But I think the black tahini would make it more flavorful and tasty and next time I am going to use them.

I served it with some homemade oven roasted flatbread chips and believe me, we finished it in just a few seconds. So after posting two delicious chutneys Cranberry and Tomato Onion Chutney this is my final post under the theme Dips and Sauces.
