Tomato Rice

Tomato rice...Its a comfort food.. Not in a mood for write up...Lazy!!!!
Lets see the ingredients..


1 cup cooked rice
5 large ripe tomatoes
1 small onion
2 greenchillies
4 Pods of garlic (optional)
1 tsp redchilli powder
salt to taste
3 tbsp oil
2 tsp lemon juice (optional)

1 clove (optional)
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tsp channa and urad dhal
curry leaves


Heat oil in a pan, do the seasoning in specified order. Add onion, garlic and green chillies. Fry till the onions turn translucent. Add finely chopped tomatoes. Saute until the tomatoes become mushy. Add redchilli powder and salt to taste. Cover and cook till the oil separates. Don't add water. If the tomatoes aren't sour, add lemon juice after the oil separates. Add cooked rice and check the seasoning. Garnish with coriander leaves.

U can also do this with raw rice. Once the oil separates, add 1 cup of rice and 1.5 cups of water.Cover and cook till the water is absorbed. Switch of the heat and let it remain in stove top for 15 mts. Tomato Rice is ready...

Serve hot with raita and appalam.
