    1. You must use 4 juicy big tomatoes. Karam you have to adjust to your taste. When you use store bought chilli powder, you have to use very less. I have used only my homemade sambar powder which is not hot. Yes you can add ginger garlic paste if you like. I do both ways with ginger garlic and without ginger galic .Both taste awesome!! Thank you very much Bala for liking my recipes.

  33. Also how much rice to be added to the mixture, as is written 'Add needed Rice'.
    That means not all the rice to be added.

    1. You can taste the tomato rice and if you feel you need more rice, you can add. Thought I cook 1 cup of rice for this tomato rice, I will not mix everything. I set aside some rice and add the rest because I like it a little spicy.

  34. Can you Pl.post stepwise pictures for this recipe. As you post always. Thank you.

  35. Hi Padhu. I regularly prepare tomato rice following your recipe. And it has become a fabulous addition to my kitchen. My husband too likes it a lot. I prepare many other recipes from your blog. Most of the time they come out very well. Your contribution is invaluable. As a suggestion Why don't you add microwave and air fryer cooking in your blog. Even as such it is because of you that I have developed an interest in cooking. Thank you very much.

  36. Dear Padhu,
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful Tomato Recipe. Although, I am not from Indian background, I really enjoy preparing your dishes. Come out very well and tasty too. Easy to follow. My 3 year old son and my husband really love it. By the way, I love spices... :)
