Tomato Rice

Every south indian cook knew about this I guess ;)

Very simple, quick and tasty recipe.

Best for lunch boxes and travel.

Ingredients:
Cooked Rice - 3-4 cups
Ripe Tomatoes - 2, medium sized, finely chopped
Onions - 1, medium sized, finely chopped
Chilli powder - 1/2 tablespoon or as spicy required
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - few
Salt to taste
Oil/Ghee - 1-2 tablespoons

Method:
Heat oil/ghee in a big pan. Once it is hot, allow mustard seeds to splitter in it.

Add curry leaves, onions and fry until they are golden brown. Then add garlic paste and fry until the raw smell goes off.

Then add chopped tomatoes and saute well. Add chilli powder, turmeric powder and mix well.

Keep stirring in intervals until tomatoes become soft. Add salt to taste and cook until it become thick.

Add cooked rice, salt(if required) and stir carefully, so that all gets mixed well.

Cook it covered in a low flame for 5-10 minutes.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with coconut chutney or pappad.

Cooking time : 20 minutes
Serves 2 persons.
