Rice being the most staple food is also considered the most comfort food. Everybody has a favorite of its own and every region has a different specialty of its own. While in the extreme East, people eat black rice, people in the South of India have the thickest rice which is extremely high in fibre.
Some people indulge in Luxury Pulaos and Biryani while some people find bliss in simple steam rice with some home made ghee or clarified butter.
You can flavor the rice with one souring agent and it becomes a meal in itself. While lemon rice and curd rice are the most loved rice, I also like and make Tomato Rice often as tomato has become my most favorite vegetable. The sourness can lift the face and taste of any simple recipe.
What You Need:
1 cup rice
1 cup soy nuggets
1/2 cup green peas
1 tsp cumin seeds
Salt to taste
2 cinamon stick
1 bay leaf
few whole black pepper corn
Highlight of the dish- 4 tomatoes pureed
Steps To Make:
Boil water in a saucepan. Soak soy nuggets for 2 minutes.
Strain and let it cool down. Squeeze to remove extra water.
Cook rice in a pot of pan till rice is semi cooked. Strain excess water.
Heat ghee in a pan. Add whole dry spices and cumin seeds.
Add soy nuggets and green peas. Cook till soy nuggets are nicely coated with ghee.
Add Tomatoes and cook on high to cook the tomatoes thoroughly.
Remember you need to be careful at this time and don't leave the gas stove. Else you will not know when tomatoes will burn.
