Tomato Rice/Thakkali Saadam – Day 2, Blogging Marathon #11

 Quick and Easy to make Tomato Rice, The Richness of Coconut Milk adds an excellent flavor to the Rice.

2 Cups Cooked Rice
3 Big Tomatoes, finely Chopped
2 Medium-Sized Onions, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Chilli Powder (increase or decrease to suit your taste)
1/4 tsp Coriander Powder
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 Cup thin Coconut Milk (I used Store-Bought Powder)
Curry Leaves a few
Coriander leaves for Garnish
Salt to taste


  • Heat oil in a pan, Splutter mustard seeds, add curry leaves, onion and garlic and saute till onion turn translucent.
  • Add Tomatoes and Saute. Add the Red Chilli Powder and Coriander Powder and 1/2 Cup Water and mix well. Add Salt.
  • When the mixture turns little mushy, add Coconut Milk and reduce the flame. Let it simmer for 10 minutes. 
  • By this time, the mixture must have turned saucy. Take it off the flame. (If it is still runny, let it sit for 5 more minutes).
  • Mix the Cooked rice and garnish with fresh Coriander leaves and Serve with your favorite curry.
