TOMATO RICE

Photobucket

There are so many ways to prepare this dish but this turns out great. I'm using long grain rice but you can also use basmati rice. If you're using basmati rice, do soak the grain for 20 minutes then drain. Basmati rice produces perfect rice all the time, it has special aroma.

It is highly recommended to use rice cooker for cooking this dish in order to avoid sticking to the bottom if not just use ordinary pot but once the water evaporates you must use the lowest flame to continue cooking the rice until it is done.

TOMATO RICE
Serves 4-6 persons

4  cup   long grain rice
3 Onion chopped
8 tomato chopped

1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2  cup  coriander leaves chopped
4  tablespoon   oil
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp chana dhal
Curry leaves
salt to taste

DIRECTIONS
