Tomato rice( tomato bath/ thakali sadam)

This tangy south Indian dish is such a easy meal. Tomatoes are so rich in antioxidants and I just love this. Here goes the recipe...

Basmati rice - 6 cups
tomatoes - 6 nos
onions - 1nos
chilly powder - 1 tbsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
green chillies - 2 nos
ginger- garlic paste - 1 tbsp
veg stock cube -1 nos
cloves - 6 nos
cardamon - 6 nos
bay leaves - 2 nos
Cinnamon -1 stick
aniseed - 1/4 tsp
star aniseed - 1 nos
mace - 1 nos
ghee - 2 tbsp
dalda - 2 tbsp
oil - 2 tbsp
water - 6 cups

In a pressure cooker, add dalda and oil. When hot add all the whole spices like cloves, cardamom, Cinnamon, bay leaves, aniseed, star aniseed and mace and let it splutter. Now add onions and stir fry till golden brown. Add green chillies, ginger- garlic paste and fry for a min. Now add chilly powder, tomatoes, garam masala powder, veg stock cube and saute for a while. Finally add rice, salt, water and ghee. Cover and cook up to 2 whistles. Serve hot with papads.

In this recipe even leftover rice can be used. Make a thick paste out of all the ingredients and add the rice and toss well, until its well coated. Serve hot
