Tomato Rice

March 18, 2014

This is a mildly spicy and tangy rice preparation that is so tasty and easy to make. This can be packed in the lunch box, for kids. This can be served with papads and pachadi.

1 Cup Rice (Kolam or Basmati) (I used Kolam)
2 Medium size Tomatoes
1 Onion finely chopped
1 Teaspoon Ginger-Garlic paste
2 Fresh Red or Green Chillies ( I used red)
1/4 teaspoon Garam Masala powder
1 Maggi veg soup cube
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 Teaspoon sugar
1.1/2 Cup water

For the tempering
1 Tablespoon oil + 1 teaspoon ghee
5 Peppercorns
2 Inch piece Cinnamon
2 Cardamons
4 Cloves
1/2 Teaspoon Fennel Seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
1 Bay leaf

For Garnishing
1 Tablespoon Coriander chopped


Wash the rice and keep aside. In a blender add the chillies, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala powder,maggi cube and blend till fine paste add the tomatores and blend to make a puree.

In a pressure pan heat the oil + ghee add all the ingredients for the tempering when they release an aroma add the chopped onions and fry till light brown.
