Thakkali sadam, Tomato rice a simple bachelor friendly | lunch box recipe. Recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

Thakkali sadam, Tomato rice is a Popular South Indian variety rice. I have fond memories of taking tomato rice for lunch during my school and college days. Since amma was a working mom, we would mostly take dosai with molagapodi for lunch. Happily, we would take it as we are a huge fan of dosai molagapodi. Whenever amma gets an off day on a school working day, we would get varieties of food for the lunch box. We would look forward to chapati kurma, thakkali sadam, carrot rice, and brinjal rice in those days.

I have posted Thakkali biryani | tomato biryani recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen. We have lots of tomato-based South Indian recipes like tomato thokku, tomato pickle, Tomato sweet pachadi.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tomato
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Green chilli
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder
  • Salt as needed
  • 1.5 cups Cooked rice
  • ½ tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Garam masala
  • ½ tsp Mustard seeds
  • 2 green chilli
  • Curry leaves few

Instructions

  • In a pan add 1 tbsp oil and once it becomes hot add ½ tsp mustard seeds, curry leaves, and 2 slit green chili.
  • Green chili gives a nice taste to the Thakkali sadam, so do not omit.
  • Once the mustard splutters, add 1 thinly sliced onions and saute till translucent.
  • Add 2 chopped tomatoes. Always for tomato rice, the tomato should be more than the onion.
  • Mix well and add 1 tsp red chili powder, salt, turmeric powder, and garam masala.
  • I wanted to make it bit spicy so added 1 tsp red chili powder. You can reduce it if you want it less spicy.
  • Mix well.
  • Let this cook till tomatoes are mushy. Do not add any water. The water oozing out from the tomato is enough to get it cooked. Cook in a medium flame.
  • Once this comes to a thokku consistency add the cooked rice.
  • Mix well gently and evenly.
  • Drizzle 1 tsp of ghee. This step is optional but highly recommended. Mix evenly
  • Thakkali sadam | tomato rice is ready. You can garnish with coriander leaves if you want.
