Tomato rice


I learnt Tomato Rice from my Mother In Law. One day she prepared Tomato rice for lunch. I just loved it. Also it is favorite of Raghu & Surekha(My sister in law).My MIL is expert in preparing different types of Rice items. When we are tired we feel like preparing any rice item which is instant, Instead of preparing both Rice and Curry. Here is the recipe.


  • Basmati Rice / Normal Rice- 1 Big glass and soak it for 10 mins
  • Chilly Powder - 1/2 spoon
  • Turmeric powder - Pinch
  • Tomatoes - 3
  • Onions- 1
  • Ginger Garlic Paste - 2 spoons
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Cloves-2 to 4
  • Curry Leaves- 5 to 7
  • Cinnamon- 1 to 3 small pieces
  • Elachi/ Cardamom - 1 powdered
  • Bay leaf- 1

1. Take a pan. Add oil/ Ghee when it became hot add cloves, Cinnamon, Elachi, Bay leaf, Curry leaves and fry for a minute. Then add ginger garlic paste, Chilly powder, Turmeric and onions. Fry until Onions are half cooked. Add chopped Tomatoes.

2. When Tomatoes were cooked add soaked rice and mix evenly. Then add 2 glasses of water and add salt to taste. Transfer entire mixture in to vessel/ cooker/ or rice cooker container. I used rice cooker container. And wait until rice is cooked properly. Add Dhaniya leaves on the top.

1. This recipe is normal spicy. You can add or reduce spiciness according to your taste.
