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.
INGREDIENTS: Serves 2

COOKED RICE 1/2 CUP
ONION 1 NO
TOMATO 1 NO
SAMBAR POWDER 1/2 TSP
TURMERIC POWDER A PINCH
OIL 1 TBLSP
SALT AS NEEDED
MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP
PAV BHAJI MASALA 2 PINCHES
CURRY LEAVES FEW

METHOD:

  • Cook the rice and spread it in a plate to make it cool.
  • Do not over cook the rice or mash it.
  • In a pan, add oil and throw in the mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • When it splutters add chopped onions and saute for a minute.

  • Saute nicely in a medium flame till the raw smell goes.
  • Switch off the flame and add the rice to this and mix well.

  • Garnish with coriander leaves.

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.
