Tomato Rice

Tomato Rice

Whenever I feel lazy to cook, my choice is usually Tomato rice. It is very simply to cook and tastes delicious.

Ingredients needed

Basmati Rice -1 cup
Ripe juicy tomatoes -4
Onion -2 medium size
Green chillies -2
Ginger-Garlic paste -1 tsp
Chillie Powder -1 tsp
Turmeric Powder -1/4 tsp
Salt as required
Oil -2 tbsp

For the seasoning

Mustard - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Curry leaves - little

Method

Soak Basmati Rice for 20 minutes. Drain water and pressure cook rice adding 2 cups of boiling water.

Take juice of 4 tomatoes in a blender and keep it aside.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a kadai and add the ingredients for seasoning.

Add onions and saute till it turns translucent.

Add green chillies and ginger- garlic paste. Saute for a few more minutes.

Then add tomato juice, turmeric powder, chillie powder and salt.
Cook till oil separates.

Add the cooked rice to the tomato gravy and mix well.

Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with papads, potato chips or raita.

  16. Last week had a nice coffee break with friends. While we started talking about best recipe sites, I vehemently argued that padhus kitchen is the best. some thought might know you personally. I have never met you but with your work you are part of my daily life. Thanks.
