Tomato Pulav

Most of my weekends, I cook full meals. But occasionally, I like to cook some variety rice with simple side dishes. Tomato pulav is one of my fav menu & I like to serve them with potato fry & raita.

Ingredients :
  1. Rice - 1 cup
  2. Tomatoes - 4 large sized
  3. Oil - 1 tbsp
  4. Cinnamon stick - 1 no
  5. Cloves - 2 nos
  6. Cardamom - 2 nos
  7. Bay leaf - 1 no
  8. Onion - 1 no (sliced lengthwise)
  9. Gingergarlic paste - 1 tsp
  10. Mint leaves - 1 tbsp
  11. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  12. Chilly powder - 2 tsp
  13. Salt to taste
  14. Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
  15. Corriander leaves for garnishing

Method :

1. Cook the rice & keep aside.

2. Boil the tomatoes in the water for 10 mins. Cool & remove the skin. Grind them to smooth paste & keep aside.

3. Heat oil in the pan, add the seasonings. Add onions, mint leaves & ginger garlic paste. Saute till golden brown.

4. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder & tomato paste. Finally, add garam masala & mix the rice.

5. Finally add the corriander leaves & mix well.

Serve with raita.
