TOMATO RICE II

Photobucket

There are so many ways to cook tomato rice but my choice goes to this recipe, simply fantastic.

When using tomato puree make sure you taste first before adding since certain brands are fully concentrated and adding too much will make the rice overly sour and spoil the taste of this yummy rice..

You could use basmati rice but that requires soaking  for about 30 minutes before hand. The water level should be 1 inch above the rice. Let's cook...

INGREDIENTS

2 cups long grain rice/basmati
2 green chili slit
1 onion chopped
1/2  cup  tomato puree
1/2  tablespoon  ginger garlic paste
1/2  tablespoon  chili powder
4   tablespoon  butter or oil
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 T chopped coriander leaves
1 stick cinnamon
2 cardamoms
salt to taste
4  cup  water

METHOD

* Heat the oil, fry cinnamon, cardamom and onion until light brown. Add ginger garlic paste, green chili and coriander leaves, cook until fragrant.

* Now add the tomato puree, chili powder, turmeric and salt, stir until well blended.

* Transfer this onto rice cooker, add rice and required water to cook the rice, on the switch.

* Rice is ready to eat with your favorite curry. Enjoy!

Looks lovely, the color is great and beautiful pic. I am sure it tasted great too. tomato rice is my favorite to cook but with cooked rice though, also never used tomato puree, always chop them finely. I guess, I need to try out this method :)

Tomato rice is always yummy. I do always add fresh tomato, but good to know that tomato puree is also a good substitute for that. Nice Prep.
