Tomato Rice

If you are in a hurry, wanna try some quick, special, yummy and easy recipe, then this is the best one. I prepare this when my hubby gets bore with lemon rice. I feel this is the great way of using the left over rice. The rice no more looks like a left over one, they get steamed in the tomato puree and acquires and tangy and fresh flavor. Looks wonderful. Tomato bath is different from tomato rice. In tomato bath we cook the raw rice in the tomato puree where as in tomato rice we fry the cooked rice in tomato puree. 






Ingredients:
Cooked rice-4 cups(Measured with 160ml cup)
Tomato puree- 1 cup(160ml)
Onions finely chopped-1/2cup
Cumin seeds-1/2tbsp
Green peas-1/4cup
Ginger- finely grated-1/2tbsp
Garlic- finely grated-1 tbsp
Green chili-chopped-2 big(depending on the heat you require in the rice)
Salt to taste
pepper powder-1/2tbsp
Curry leaf-5 in number(optional)
Cilantro/coriander-10 springs chopped
Bay leaf-2
Cinnamon stick-1 inch
cardamom -2 cloves
Dhaniya powder/coriander powder-1/2tbsp
oil/butter-2tbsp(I prefer butter,because it gives good flavor)
turmeric-pinch






Directions:

First prepare a curry paste with tomatos+Chili by grinding them together. Take a pan and add 2ts of oil/butter and heat it, to the oil add cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and bay leaves.  when all the spices get baked add onions, curry leaf, ginger,garlic,little turmeric, and green peas and fry until the onions are finely cooked. Now, add the first grinded paste coriander powder and cook until the raw flavor of tomato vanishes. Add cooked rice and mix them. close the lid and cook in simmer for 2min. Finally garnish with cilantro and the delicious dish is ready.
