Tomato Rice

If you had seen this tweet, here is the follow up post of how to prepare it. Tomato rice is easy and fast to prepare for a meal. It goes well with a small curry (potato, brinjal) or papad or curd. Also if you are off to a friends family picnic its good on the menu. The below will serve a meal for two.

Tomato - 7
Rice - 1 and 1/2 cup
Turmeric power - 1/2 tsp
Chilly power - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 and 1/2 tsp
[last 4 items qty as required]

First smash the tomato in the mixer to liquid state. Then pour the smashed tomato in a pan and heat it for a while, until the raw smell of tomato is gone. Keep stirring it in the pan so its evenly cooked (it becomes slightly thick). Pour it in a cooker along with 1.5 cups of rice, 7 cups of water (or as required), add turmeric, chilly power, garam masala and salt (qty mentioned above). Stir the mixture well. Let the rice cook. Its ready!!!

When taking it form the cooker, just add two teaspoon of oil and mix the rice well in it, so that the rice does not become sticky.

Bon appetit!
