Simple Tomato Rice

     By default, on all my weekend, will be in confused mental state on what to be prepared for my Breakfast and Lunch time. If its my lazy weekend and my lil one was away from me, OMG ! totally will become a mental for sure :) The main my savior or remedy will be this easy, breezy, comforting rice bowl. Actually its a looted recipe from my H - grand ma's recipe. Noone can beat her taste including me. Mostly she use to prepare this for our breakfast but i loved to try this for my lunch time with a combo of onion raitha and Onion Pakoda. Even tried it on a weekend and here comes the procedure along with the clicks.


ALL YOU NEED:
Basmathi Rice 2 Cups
Chopped Onion 2 Nos.
Chopped Tomato 3 Nos.
Coriander Leaf 3 Twigs
Green chilly 5 Nos.
Fennel Seeds 1 spoon
Curry Leaf 1 Twig
Mint Leaf Handful
Cinnamon 1 inch
Mustard 1 spoon
Ginger 1 1/2 inch
Garlic 1 Bulb
Cloves 5 Nos.
Ghee 2 spoons
Salt To Taste
Oil 1 spoon


METHOD:
     Heat a spoon of oil and 2 spoons of ghee in a pressure pan. Once done, add mustard, when it splutters, add chopped onion, green chilly, cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, chopped garlic, chopped ginger, curry leaf, corainder leaf, mint leaf, do fine sauting by adding pinch of salt. Now add on turmeric powder, tomato, saute it again until oil oozes out. Now add the soaked rice and add 2 1/2 cups of water, adjust with salt. Now, partially close the pan, once rice comes to boil, let be in full flame for 3 mins. Now, close the pan completely, put on the weight. Keep the flame in simmer for 10 mins. Once done, serve hot with onion raitha.

Note: Can also add some bean or vegetables along with rice, if needed.
