Tomato Rice

This is my quick way of making tomato rice. It has all the tanginess of tomato and you can make it a bit spicy if you wish to. I had some cooked basmati rice from yesterday's lunch part. So it was even more easy to make a yummy dinner.

You need

  • Cooked basmati rice - 2 cups
  • Garlic - 2 pods
  • Tomato - 2 big
  • Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves - 1 bunch
  • Oil for sauteeing
  • Butter - 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste


  • Make a puree of the tomatoes.
  • Heat oil in a thick bottomed vessel
  • Add chopped garlic and saute for a minute on medium flame.
  • Add tomato puree and saute until all water dries off and it becomes thick.
  • Add butter at this stage
  • Add chilli powder and saute for a minute. Add salt to taste (I had cooked rice with salt, so add accordingly here)
  • Put the cooked rice into it and mix well. Add hand broken coriander leaves along with stem. 
  • Mix well. Serve hot.
