Tomato Rice - Version 2

For this edition of Blogging Marathon #19, I have opted to cook from a fellow marathoner, Suma of Veggieplatter. I shall post recipes from her space which qualify under the current themes of BM #19. 

When I saw this recipe of Tomato Rice at her space, I instantly fell in love with a new idea of making Tomato Rice. It has been a life saver for me ever since. 

This comes in handy when I need to pack a lunch box and run out of ideas! My older one who is a picky eater has accepted it as one of her favorites (touch wood!!). I have tried adding ginger and garlic to this rice and that version also turns out just as good.

Ingredients - 

Basmati Rice 1 1/2 cups
Tomatoes 2 medium size
Onions chopped 
Green Chillies / Red Chilli Powder as needed
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Dhania-Jeera Powder 1 tsp
Amchur Powder (Dry Mango Powder) 1 tsp
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few)

Method Of Preparation -

Puree the tomatoes with as much water as needed to make about 3 cups of juice.

Wash Basmati rice and cook it in the tomato juice either in the rice cooker or the pressure cooker.

Meanwhile, in a heated kadai/wok, add oil and the rest of the seasoning and saute the chopped onions until they are light golden brown.

Add the salt, turmeric, dhania-jeera powder, chilli powder, amchur powder and immediately add the rice cooked in tomato juice. Remove from fire.

Mix well and set aside until the flavors seep into every grain and enjoy with chopped cashews and/or almonds garnished!!
