Both myself and hubby are the great fans of tomato rice. So, I will be preparing it very often at home. These days, due to drastic increase in tomato prices, we had reduced using the tomatoes little-bit. Now, the prices are coming down slightly; and this week, my menu is full of tomato varieties.. tomato dosa, tomato curry, rasam and tomato rice! Today, I am posting the delicious tomato rice recipe for you. Try this recipe, and enjoy the week-end:)


Ingredients:
Ripe tomatoes - 2
Onion - 1
Finely chopped coriander - 3 tbsp
Elachi/ cardamom - 2
Cinnamon - 2 pieces
Cloves - 4
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Green chillies - 2
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbsp
Pinch of turmeric
Red chilly powder - 1/2 spoon
Rice - 1 1/2 cup
Salt - according to taste
Lime squeeze
Oil - 3 tbsp
Water - 2 3/4 cup (depending on the rice)

Procedure:
Cut tomatoes, red chillies and keep aside. Slice the onion thinly.
Heat oil in a pan, add cloves, cardamom and cinnamon pieces. Fry them for 1 minute and add cumin seeds, turmeric, ginger-garlic paste, followed by green chillies.
Saute them for 1 - 2 minutes, and add tomato pieces, sliced onion and chilly powder. Cook them for few minutes until tomato pieces become smooth. You can add little salt to cook them fast.
Add the rice (cleanly washed in water) and required quantity of water to cook them. I have added 2 3/4 cup of water here.. it depends on the type of rice you are using.


Add salt, lime juice and chopped coriander leaves and adjust the taste.
Cook this mixture in pressure cooker or rice cooker. You can add roasted cashew pieces once they are done.
Serve the warm tomato rice with Raita or simply curd.
One important thing to be noted is that, be careful while adding the chilly powder. If you add little more also, it will become too spicy.
