This is a very satisfying quick fix dinner. I always make this when I have some Non veg dish in the fridge which i can heat up. So all I have to worry about is chopping some onions for raitha and then ofcourse chopping onions and tomatoes for the tomato rice. That is it!!!! So here is the recipe...
Basmati Rice: 2 cups
Onions: 2 sliced
Tomatoes: 2 chopped
Ginger and Garlic- 1 tbsp each
Coriander Powder: 1 1/2 tsp
Chilly Powder:1 tsp
Turmeric Powder: a pinch
Cinnamon- 1 stick
Coriander leaves and Curry leaves- a handful
Salt and Oil- as required.
Wash and soak the rice in water (atleast for 20 minutes). Meanwhile chop the onions, tomatoes, greenchillies, garlic and ginger.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and splutter the whole garam masala (cardamom, cinnamon, cloves).
Add the onions and saute till light brown. Now add the ginger, garlic and greenchillies and saute till onions are properly browned.
Now add all the masalas, curry leaves, corinader leaves and tomatoes and keep stirring in between till tomoatoes are cooked well.
Now add rice with enough salt and 3 cups water and close the lid of the pressure cooker.
When steam starts coming out steadily, place the weight and wait for 20 seconds and turn off the stove.
Let it remain like that for half an hour. Take off the lid after half hour and your tasty tomato rice is ready!!
