• Tomato Bath

    September 9th, 2010MammuRice

    When ever I am running out of vegetables, I think of cooking some thing with rice itself like pulao, kichidi, tomato bath etc. I opts in Tomato Bath when ever I feel like eating simply with out a lot of spices in it. Made this for dinner last night and loved it.

    You can also make this on stove using a regular pan, but I feel its more easy for me cooking directly in a rice cooker, so that it leaves me just one vessel to wash 🙂

    Preparation Time: 30 Minutes
    Servings: 2

    1. Rice – 1 rice cooker cup
    2. Tomato – 1 large(1 Cup chopped)
    3. Onion – 1/2 small (1/3 cup chopped)
    4. Green chilies – 2, Split
    5. Cilantro – 2 tablespoons chopped
    6. Cloves/Lavang – 2
    7. Dhaniya powder – 3/4 teaspoon
    8. Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
    9. Salt – 1 teaspoon
    10. Curry leaves – 5
    11. Oil – 1 tablespoon

    For tempering/talimpu – Cumin seeds, mustard seeds, turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon each and few curry leaves

    Cooking Procedure

    1. Add oil to rice cooker pan, and turn it on in cook mode. Close the lid and let the oil heat for 2 minutes. Open lid, add tempering/talimpu ingredients, let them splutter. Add onions, ginger garlic paste, saute for minute. Add Tomatoes, green chilies, mix thoroughly, close the lid. Let them cook for 6-7 minutes until soft.

    2. Add 1 1/2 cup of water (adjust as per your rice), dhaniya powder, salt, close the lid and let the water bubble. Now drain the soaked rice and add it to boiling water. Stir it, close the lid and let it cook like regular rice.

    Garnish with Coriander and serve hot with raita.
