Trinidadian Tomato Choka
Trinidadian Tomato Choka 
Its been a while since I made anything Trinidadian so when we had family visiting I decided to make Trinidadian Tomato Choka. This dish is simple, easy and an excellent blend of flavors. To top that most of the ingredients used in this dish were grown in our home garden. The mouthwatering combination of fresh juicy ripened tomatoes and roasted garlic makes for a simple yet tantalizing dish that is sure to leave you wanting more. The secret to this dish is the smoked flavor from the oven roasted tomatoes.  Eat tomato choka with Trinidadian dhalpuri roti, paratha or chappatis.
