Note:

  1. If you are doing in rice cooker, add 1 3/4 cups of water.
  2. Since the tomato also give away water water, dont add water more than this.
  3. Otherwise the rice will be soggy.
  4. If you want it more spicy,you can grind 2 green chillies  along with the garlic and ginger.

  1. I love the grains separated and the beautiful saffron colour of the rice. The bowls are elegant and the contrast renders an extra touch to the beautiful click. Recipe sounds easy and relishable.
