Tomato-Garlic Rice - Day 3 Blogging Marathon

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Sunday, March 06, 2011

Another Quick to make Rice Recipe is Tomato Rice. There are 'n' number of ways to make this simple, yet tasty rice. I love this with a dash of Garlic and crunchy nuts.

1 Cup Rice, Cooked
2 Large Tomatoes, Cut into 1 inch Cubes
3 Green Chillies, finely Chopped (can be increased, according to taste)
5-6 garlic flakes, thinly sliced
1 tbsp Freshly grated Coconut
Salt to taste
2 - 3 tsp Oil/ghee
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Hing a pinch
Roasted Cashews, Fresh Coriander Leaves for Garnishing
Heat Oil/Ghee in a Kadai, Splutter Mustard Seeds, add hing. Add Garlic and Chillies. Once the garlic turns brown, add Tomatoes and turmeric powder, add little water and Cook until Soft. Keep the Flame low while cooking tomatoes. Once they are done, Add Coconut and Put off the flame. Add Rice, Mix well. Adjust the Salt. Garnish with Roasted Cashews and Fresh Coriander. Serve Hot with Raita or Some Crisps!!!
You can replace cashews with roasted Almonds or Peanuts. If you want the rice to be more spicy, try adding 1 or 2 Red Chillies while seasoning or add some Pepper Powder while serving.
