Tomato Rice Bhaat Recipe – One Pot Meal – Lunchbox Special

Tomato Rice Bhaat Recipe – One Pot Meal – Lunchbox Special

Tomato rice is a simple, tangy and spicy medley of a tomatoes, a few spices, onions, lentils (for crunch and flavour) and of course, Rice! It is a mouth-watering combination of staples that doesn’t grow old. I’ve made tomato rice several times before and I’m not joking, but it feels like the dish is incomplete without drinking a cup of hot tea. I have tried it without tea, but I am somehow left unsatisfied when I dare to do so. Beats me!

Oh well, I’ve passed on the recipe and done my part. Now it’s up to you! Will you be craving for a cup of tea, like me? Or will you wash it down with just some water and the customary raita or coconut chutney on the side? Only time will tell. (*wink*)

Here’s a quick look at the ingredients:

1) Tomatoes – 4
2) Onion – 1 1/2
3) Curry leaves – 10-12
4) Coriander leaves – handful
5) Green Chillies – 6
