Simple Supper - Tomato Rice
Tomato rice with boondi raita and green tomato pickle
It was a hectic start to the week and when evening rolled around, I was too tired to cook anything elaborate. Some basmati rice, some frozen veggies from the freezer, a few stock ingredients from the pantry and piping hot tomato rice was ready in 20 minutes. Paired with soothing boondi raita and homemade green tomato avakkai pickle, it was a simple, satisfying weekday supper.
2 cups basmati rice
2 generous tbsp canned tomato paste
1 small red onion chopped
1 cup frozen mixed veggies
2 tbsp dessicated coconut
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp chilli powder
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp jeera
2 cardamom pods
1 small piece of cinnamon
salt to taste
Fluff up the rice and savour with some tasty pickles, raita and papad.
You can also fry all the ingredients and for the last step, just transfer everything to the rice cooker and let cook for a fuss-free dinner. I've done this when I need to step out of the house for 1/2 an hour, but want the rice to continue cooking when I'm away.
