Ingredients (for 1 large plate):

     1)    Biriyani rice (aged scented raw rice) – 200 gm.
     2)    Fully ripe tomatoes – 250 gm.
     3)    Onion – 50 gm.
     4)    Clove – 1 No.
     5)    Cinnamon stick – 1 inch piece
     6)    Red chili powder – ½ teaspoon
     7)    Garlic – 3 cloves
     8)    Ghee (clarified butter) – 1½ tablespoons
     9)    Water – 400 ml.
     10)    Salt – 1 teaspoon

To Cook:

          Wash and soak the rice. Peel the tomatoes. Remove the seeds and chop finely. Peel the onion and chop to fine pieces. Peel the garlic cloves and chop to fine pieces. Set a thick stainless steel wok on the stove. Pour in the ghee. Chuck in the tomato, the onion and the garlic pieces together with the clove and the cinnamon stick. Roast slowly on low heat stirring frequently until the tomatoes and onions are tender.

          Now add the chili powder and pour in the water. Add the salt. When it comes to a boil, add the soaked rice after draining off the water. When it boils again, lower the heat and cover. Check and stir every few minutes to avoid sticking at the base. Taste and adjust the seasoning. When the water is fully absorbed, the rice will be cooked. Your delicious tomato rice is now ready to eat. You can garnish with freshly cut tomato rings. Serve hot.

          Children love tomato rice. It is simple to prepare, easy to digest and good to carry on picnics or on short journeys or simply in your lunch box. If you have unexpected visitors for lunch, you can easily prepare fine tomato rice in less than 20 minutes time.
