Tomato Rice

This is a hit recipe in my home. From the youngest to the oldest everybody likes this rice. When I am bored to make an elaborate lunch or dinner I make this rice and with some raita and papad. Your meal is ready in a jiffy.

1 Cup rice. Any rice can be used Basmati or Sona masoori. I use Sona masoori.
2 Tomatoes
1 medium onion
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Dhania Jeera Powder
1-2 Green Chillies
Few curry leaves
Jeera & Rai for tadka
1 Tbsp Oil
Pinch of hing/asafoetida
1 tsp Curry Powder (Optional)
Salt to taste
What to do:
Cook rice till soft but the grains should be separated.
Make two cross slits on the tomatoes. Boil tomatoes in enough water for 5-10 minutes. Bath the tomatoes in the cold water & remove the skin. Mash the tomatoes and to pulp.
Heat oil. Add rai-jeera, hing, curry leaves, green chillies. Add onion fry till soft. Add chilli powder, Dhaniya-Jeera powder, salt and the tomato pulp. Cook till the consistency of dosa batter. Sprinkle curry powder if using.
Mix with rice. Serve hot with raita & papad.
