Tomato Rice

Ingredients to make Tomato Rice :

  • 4 cups of cooked rice (I used basmati).
  • 1.5 cups of chopped ripe tomatoes.
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped onion or shallots (chinna vengayam, ulli).
  • 1 tsp of ghee.
  • 1 tsp of oil.
  • 1/2 tsp of black mustard seeds.
  • 1 tsp of split urad dal (ulutham paruppu, uzhunnu parippu).
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin powder.
  • 1/2 tsp of minced garlic (or use 4-5 garlic cloves).
  • 2 green chillies (adjust to taste).
  • 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder.
  • 4 tbsp of finely chopped coriander leaves (for garnish).


  1. Heat the oil + ghee in a pan and add the mustard seeds and urad dal.
  2. When the mustard pops and the dal turns golden, add the finely chopped onion or shallots along with the green chillies, slit.
  3. Let the onions saute to a golden brown and then add the garlic, cumin powder, and turmeric. Saute for a while longer (30 seconds or so) for the garlic to get toasted.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes to this and cook on low flame.
