Tomato Rice

Yet another of my one dish lunch box wonders. Amma's tried and tested recipe. Handed down, modified, and made very very often.


1 cup Basmati Rice, cooked
2 Onions, sliced
4 Tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Green Chilli Paste
1/2 tsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
1 tbsp Oil
1tsp Cumin Seeds
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
Salt to taste

Heat the oil in a kadhai and add the mustard, asafoetida and cumin seeds. When the mustard splutters, add the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped tomato and fry for a minute or two more. Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, green chilli paste, ginger-garlic paste and salt. Add the cooked rice, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Garnish with coriander leaves if you like.

This is why I like rice, it is so versatile, any herb or spice can be easily infused to make it a gourmet dish.
