There  are various ways to cook Tomato Rice either using fresh/canned tomatoes or  tomato puree. Even I have shared  another  recipe  that were differ slightly from one another due to the ingredients/spices used. If you want to check the recipe click  here. .

Easy Tomato Rice  is one of my favorite weekend meal. It uses tomato puree instead of fresh tomatoes. Please take note. different brands  of tomato puree produce extra  sour  to this dish. So  use your own  judgement as to how tangy  you want the rice to be.  Am using a concentrated tomato puree of Italian origin  but for other brand, highly recommended to add more than 2 tablespoon.

A blend of tomato puree, onion, garlic and spices are used to create a bed of delicious fluffy rice. Easy Tomato Rice goes well with spicy chicken, lamb or vegetable gravy if you're a  vegetarian.

My hubby makes a lot of Spanish rice and while the base of using tomatoes is similar to this, he doesn't add all the spices into it. Will have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday. Pinned.
