Tomato-bath-recipe

                 I am trying this for the first time from a cook book I am having….I was searching for some quick and simple rice variety today late morning for my kid and this recipe sounded good for me,so I decided to make this and I made it in my way to suit our tastebuds.Simply love these variety rice…Love Struck.

Ingredients

Tomatoes.;Big sized 4 nos
Oil or Ghee 2 tblsp
Onion 2 nos
Curry leaves 2 sprigs
Coriander leaves,chopped 1 & 1/2 Tblsp
salt As needed
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp

To grind to smooth paste

Coconut,grated 1/4 cup
shallots/small onions 8 nos
Cinnamon 1 small piece(1/2 inch)

To temper

Oil 2 tsp

Channa dal/Kadala paruppu 1 tsp
Cashew nut (optional) 4-5 nos

Method:

  1. Pressure cook rice and cool down to make sure that the rice grains are separate.I cooked rice in 1: 1 & 1/4 ratio with water ,upto 3 whistles.
  2. Chop tomato into finely and cut onions length wise.
  3. Heat a heavy bottomed pan with oil and add the tempering items given in order.Then add the onions and fry till transparent and add the ginger garlic paste and fry till raw smell goes off.
  4. tb1-horz
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes and add enough salt that is required for the rice and cook in slow flame,till it becomes mushy. (6-8 min)
  6. tb3-horz
  7. Grind the ingredients under the To Grind  table and add it to the cooking tomatoes and mix well(add oil or ghee now). Cook in low flame till you get a nice aroma.
  8. tb5-horz tb7-horz
  9. Mix this to the cooked cooled rice carefully and add the chopped coriander leaves and serve with raita  or salad of your choice or any vegetable accompaniment.

  13. there are so many versions of tomato rice & I just love each one of it .. looks great

  14. OOOOOOOooooh that is my very very fav one raji... the tomato rice which i posted already is one type. The next version which i wanted to post is this kind. But the difference is for making the paste, I just use the garlic, saunf, redchilli and coconut. Others are same. I love this ..becos grinding little coconut gives different flavor to the tomato rice. Seeing ur display plate its making me drool..hopefully I'll make tomato rice today. And asusual ur pictures are damn good dear.
