Tomato Rice(Easy method)

There are two ways of making Tomato Rice( as far as I know)) and this is the easier one.



INGREDIENTS:

Tomato medium size------------------------------------------3 Finely chopped
Onion medium size--------------------------------------------2 Finely chopped
Grated Ginger-------------------------------------------------1 Tsp
Chilly Powder-------------------------------------------------1 Tsp
Garam Masala-------------------------------------------------1 Tsp
Green Chilly----------------------------------------------------2 Make a small slit lengthwise  
Turmeric Powder----------------------------------------------1/2 Tsp
Oil---------------------------------------------------------------2 Tbsp
Coriander leaves chopped------------------------------------- As required
Salt-------------------------------------------------------------- As required

Cook 2 cups of Basmathi rice with 3 cups of water (or as you prepare for any mixed rice). Make sure your rice is not mushy and the grains are separate.

METHOD:

Heat oil in a Kadai and add the chopped Onions,Green chillies,Grated ginger and Turmeric powder and saute till the onion becomes transparent.Add the chopped Tomatoes and Chilly powder cook for a minute.Now add Salt and cook till the oil starts separating.Keep stirring occasionally to avoid the gravy from sticking to the bottom.Add the garam masala and mix well.Cook for a minute and then switch off the stove and keep covered for 5 minutes. Now add the cooked rice and mix softly without mashing the rice.Add the Chopped coriander and serve this with any Raitha.


I normally cook everything in low flame,except for those recipes which need to be cooked in high flame. By doing this we can avoid the food from getting burnt.
