Tomato Rice (direct)

Tomato Rice (direct):

Searching/Juggling for a breakfast every day morning is really difficult. I feel so bad because if I do new things my family members will try it out and pass a comment, "its good".

But, if I try traditional ones, I will get a comment from my hubby "did you eat? is it good? nobody in the house had it except you". In office, if I share the same they will pass a comment saying, "Its good". Seriously I am tired and don't know how to understand taste of my own family. Speaking truth is bitter sometimes, but I don't have a go except for sharing with you all.

I tried out tomato rice today, in the way my mom-in-law used to cook.

  • Ripped Tomatoes - 6
  • Salt to taste
  • Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Cilantro - few (chopped)
  • Turmeric Power - 1 tsp
  • Dhaniya/Coriander Seeds Powder - 1 tbsp
  • Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
  • Green Chillies - 3 to 4
  • Fenugreek seeds+Mustard seeds - grinded powder - 1 tsp
  • Jaggery - small one (just for taste)
  • Oil - for tadka
  • Urad dal - 1 tbsp
  • Channa dal - 1 tbsp

  1. Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds to it, once it splutters, add curry leaves to it.
  2. Add urad dal, channa dal, salt to the oil and leave till it turns reddish brown
  3. Add chopped ripped tomatoes to the above mixture and mix them well
  4. Add little water and leave tomatoes to become soft for 10 minutes
  5. Add chopped green chillies, red chilli powder, dhaniya powder, fenugreek seeds+mustard seeds powder, jaggery and mix well
  6. Once it turns to boil add cilantro/chopped coriander leaves and switch off the stove
  7. Cool the rice and mix the mixture with it
