Tomato Rice

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

What do I cook on gloomy, winter afternoons? Cook tomato rice:) It can be made with basic, humble ingredients and turns out to be a fancy item to be served when you want to entertain guests or liven up the glum of winter afternoon. Here's what you are gonna need..,


Rice-2 cups, washed
tomatoes-3, cubed
salt- to taste
red pepper powder-1 tsp
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
onion-1 med, sliced
green chillies-3 whole
ginger-garlic paste-1 tsp
water-4 cups
oil-2 tbs
cilantro-1 tbs, chopped
mint leaves-1 tbs, chopped
cloves-4 in nos

Method: Heat oil in a pot and toss in the whole spices and immediately add the onions and saute until golden brown. Add the ginger-garlic paste and fry until it turns brown, followed by the chopped tomatoes and fry them until they get mushy and seperate themselves from oil. At this point, add the washed rice and fry intil the rice grain turns white. Pour the water and cook on high heat until the water boils. At this point, add the chopped mint and cilantro and reduce the heat to a medium until all the water is absorbed and you see the steam escape. Transfer to a serving platter and enjoy!
