It’s been sometime I have written rice recipe, today sharing with you all a popular and easy to make one -pot meal, tomato rice. Rice and vegetables are tossed in tomato puree blended with spices and cooked to make an easy meal some days.

Before I proceed to the recipe, I would like to share some news with you all. I have been working on two e-books. The recipes are exclusively selected and  shall soon be available to buy. One is the book of Indian breads and the other  is of our favourite dals.

The ingredients that you need are :

  • Rice 2 cup
  • Tomato 5
  • beans 1cup
  • carrot 1cup
  • peas 1/2 cup
  • onion 2
  • ginger 2 inch
  • garlic 4 cloves
  • chilli powder 1tsp
  • water 4 cups
  • salt to taste
  • oil 2tbsp

Method :

Let’s get cooking in easy steps:

  1. Chopping of vegetables
  2. Extracting of tomato puree
  3. Cooking of tomato rice

1  Chopping of vegetables : Cut vegetables diagonally. You can see in the picture. Soak rice in water for fifteen minutes.

2 Extracting of tomato puree: Follow the method. Add ginger and cloves of garlic while grinding.

3  Cooking of tomato rice : I am making it a one pot meal, using a pressure cooker is the easiest option. Take oil in the pan, heat it and add onions. Saute for a while. Add the veggies and continue to saute. After a minute, add the rice and saute slowly. Then add the tomato pulp and  chilli powder. Mix evenly. All this is done slowly. Later, add water and salt and close  the lid. Let it cook to one whistle. Tomato rice is ready to serve. Onion in curds salads  (Raita) tastes good with it.

Take a note : You can make it in the rice cooker too. Saute the veggies  and rice in a kadai, later put it in the rice cooker and keep.
