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.
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 :)
