TOMATO RICE RECIPE

    Tomato Rice is one of the simplest variety rice recipe which i make once a week for lunch box. My mom makes this when we were in college and me and my friends will feast on this along with Simple Potato Curry.
As i am held up with some personal work, couldn’t visit any blogs for the past 5 days and i am missing many wonderful posts.

Note:
  1. Sambar powder can be replaced with red chili powder and coriander powder.
  2. Ginger garlic paste can be added in the beginning before adding onions.
  3. I used parboiled rice, and sona masoori rice or basmathi rice can be used.
