Tomato Rice

Here's another one of Amma's recipes, I have enjoyed having her here to learn from and I am trying to persuade her to get my sis in law to start a blog in India so when she returns next week, the learning can continue lol
So here it is, very simple a great dish for any meal, good with a boiled egg, chicken, or anything!
We made one for Jasmine with no spice and I scrambled an egg into it for protein!

  • pinch of cumin
  • mustard seeds
  • curry leaves
  • cilantro
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • little ginger
  • oil
  • one spoon masala powder

  1. heat the oil and pop the mustard seeds and cumin
  2. add onion, saute for a few minutes then add ginger and garlic 
  3. add masala powder one teaspoon, and tomatoes and reduce down to a paste
  4. add cooked rice and its done, easy peasy!



  1. This is another interesting way of cooking rice that is worth a try. Delicious!

  2. The rice looks delish! I think it would be great if your sis-in-law starts a blog.

  3. Looks wonderful. Yes, start the blog. We'll all come visit her.

  4. That's my kind of meal! I love Indian food, and I'm learning how easy it is to make (or at least I'm learning which spices to use to create a mock Indian dish!). I'm in love.
