I have posted my tomato and green peas pulao with coconut milk but today's recipe is a simple yet quick version of tomato rice.
As we liked the flavor and taste of this rice,my mom used to make this pulao for our lunch box atleast weekly twice along with some simple potato fry or raw banana fry.Now my son is a great fan of this rice and likes to have it with chicken fry.Here is the recipe for simple and flavorful rice..........
|Garlic(thinly sliced)||3-4 cloves|
|Coriander leaves||as needed|
|Gram masala powder||1/8tsp|
Soak the basmathi rice in water for 15 minutes and cook it along with a pinch of salt and a tsp of oil.Once the rice is done spread it on a plate and let it cool.
Heat a pan with oil and ghee and do the seasoning with the whole garam masala and cashews.Add the onion,green chilly,garlic,curry leaves and saute till transparent with a pinch of salt.Now add in the finely chopped tomatoes and cook it mushy.
- A tsp of ginger&garlic paste can also be added for extra flavor.
- Fresh or frozen peas can be used and some times I puree the tomato and added.
