Tomato bath (Tomato Pulav)

A dish that we could make quick. I could say there were only two dishes that my mom would always prefer me to cook at home. 20 minutes max and the dish would be ready.

Did you know this ! : Tomatoes are source of Vitamin C. They are poor in calories, so those in diet can take this without second thought

Ingredients:
  • Rice : 2 cups
  • Onion : 1 No. big
  • Ripe Tomato : 1 No.
  • Chilli powder : 1 tea spn
  • Garlic : 5 cloves
  • Turmeric : qtr tea spn
  • Elachi : 2 Nos. + Bay leaves : 2-3 leaves + Fennel Seeds : qtr tea spn (Whole masala)
  • Potatoes : 1 or 2 Nos. + Peas : Half cup + Cashewnuts : 5-6 Nos. (Optional)
  • Salt to taste 
  • Oil : 1.5 tbsp
For Paste
  • Ripe Tomato : 1 small
  • Ginger : half inch
  • Garlic : 7-8 cloves
  • Green chillies : 3 Nos.
  • Cloves : 2 Nos.
  • Cinnamon : a small piece
Method of preparation :
  • Grind the ingredients for paste and keep aside
  • Wash the rice and soak it in little water. Then heat 2-3 table spoons of oil in a cooker add whole masala, after a min add chopped onions, turmeric and garlic and fry well.
  • Now add the chopped tomatoes and once its well fried add the ground paste and fry for 2-3 min and add Peas , Potatoes, Red Chilly powder and Water (normally 1.5 cups of water to 1 cup of rice).
  • Once the water comes to boil add the washed rice and close the cooker.
  • After one whistle reduce the flame to the lowest possible and keep it for 10 min. Remove from flame and open the cooker lid after the pressure is released. Mix it just once and add fried cashewnuts.
  • Serve with Curd Raitha.
*Follow the same procedure if you do not have rice cooker also. Add water appropriately.
