Tomato Pulav

This is the rice item I made for my first Sunday Meals entry. I usually do this for a variation from the regular vegetable biryani/pulav. It tastes great and easy to make. One singe dish is good enough to fill you but when you have good enough time, you may make some gravies to go along with it. Here is the recipe:


3 cups Basmati Rice
2 medium tomatoes pureed in a blender
1 medium onion sliced thinly
3 serrano peppers slit length wise
3 tbsp green peas
2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder (dalchana chakka podi)
1/4 tsp clove powder (lavangam podi)
1/2 tsp cardamom powder (elaichi podi)
2 tbsp cilantro (coriander leaves, kothimeera) chopped finely
3 tbsp oil

In a pan heat oil and add onion, chillies and saute until onion is translucent. Add the powders,
ginger-garlic paste and saute for a second. Add the rice, green peas and fry for a minute. Add the tomato puree and cook for 3 minutes. Shift this into the rice cooker, add salt as per your taste and set it to cook. Serve with any gravy of your choice. Enjoy.
