Tomato rice

I am a huge fan of rice varieties. And to satisfy my craving taste buds, I recently made a spicy tomato rice. Here's a simple South Indian recipe.

Tomato Rice - recipe


1 1/2 cups rice
5 or 6 tomatoes ( medium sized, finely chopped )
1 large onion ( finely chopped )
2 cloves garlic ( crushed )
2 green chillies
juice of 1 lemon
salt to taste
curry leaves
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp ghee
1 1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 cloves
2 1/2 tsp mustard seeds


Cook the rice and leave it to cool. In a wok, heat the sesame oil and ghee. Add cloves and mustard. After the mustard splits, add chillies, garlic and curry leaves. Saute for a minute then add the onion. Saute till transparent. Add tomatoes and the rest of the spices. Stir well and let it cook for 3 minutes. Add the cooked rice, juice of a lemon and mix well. Serve when hot.

Desiree, oil or butter would be a wonderful substitute. Do try and let me know if you like it :)
