Tomato-peas-pulao-pilaf-recipe  
      I struggled a lot to get this tomato pulao correct. So I used to make this tomato rice or this tomato bath. Then I gave up making it for a while after few disasters. Then now a days found the knack to make. The key is to make with less water. This one is my kid’s favourite. This can be a perfect lunch box variety rice too. Tastes great even with a simple onion raita and some fryums/vadam.

Tomato pulao recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 30 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients


Basmati rice  1 cup 
Tomato  2 
Onion  1 
ginger garlic paste(optional)  1/2 tsp 
Green peas  1/4 cup 
Turmeric  1/8 tsp 
Garam masala  1/2 tsp 
Red chilli powder  3/4 tsp 
Green chilli  2 
Coriander leaves  2 tblsp 

To temper

Oil + Ghee 2 tblsp
Elachi 1
Cinnamon 1 piece
Clove 1
Bay leaf 1

Method

  1. Soak basmati rice for at least 1 hour. Chop tomatoes finely, slice onion and slit green chillies. Heat a pressure cooker with oil,ghee and temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table. Add green chillies, onions and fry till onion turns transparent.  Add ginger garlic paste, green peas and fry for a minute. Then add tomatoes. 1-tomato-rice
  2. Add salt, turmeric, masala powder and red chilli powder. Fry till the tomatoes turn mushy. 2-tomato-rice
  3. Drain the soaked rice and add it. Fry for a minute and add 1 cup of water, coriander leaves. Bring to boil and pressure cook until 2 whistles in low flame. 3-tomatorice

Notes

  • Soaking as much as possible will give soft rice.
  • Pressure cook in low or medium flame to avoid burning at the bottom. I usually keep lowest possible flame and cook for long time even without giving whistle.
  • Ginger garlic paste is optional and you can replace it with 3-4 chopped  garlic.
  • You can add jeera or fennel, curry leaves when you temper.
  • You can also add 8- 10 mint leaves while you fry onion.

You can top with a tsp of ghee and mix well when you open the cooker. Serve with any raita or mild kurma. We had with mixed vegetable kurma, baby corn golden fries, curd rice and appalam :)

  29. Is 1 cup water enough for 1 cup basmati rice? generally while making pulavs,i add 1 3/4 cup of water... Looks really delicious.. will try in the week end..

    ReplyDelete
  30. For this pulav, one cup is enough, as we are slow cooking and also there is moisture from tomato. Otherwise it turns mushy

    ReplyDelete
