Hi guys, I am here on a new day with a new recipe. Are you up for something tangy and tasty? Try this Tomato Rice recipe that I have relished since my Bangalore days. College meant studying and eating. Our college canteen served various variety of rice preprations like Lemon rice (Chitranna), Curd Rice(Mosaranna), Brinjal Rice(Vangibhat) and so on…. And of all, my favourite was Tomato rice.

 It’s super easy to prepare and can be served as main course or you can even pack it as tiffinbox meal for kids. Do let me know how it was in the comments below. Happy Cooking!!!!!

Prep time: 10mins    Cooking time:  30mins     Serves: 02-03people

  • Rice / chawal (3 cups cooked in 5 cups of water)
  • Tomato / tamatar ( 2-3 big sized, cubed)
  • Mustard / rai seeds (1 tsp)
  • Fenugreek / meethi seeds (1/2 tsp)
  • Curry leaves / curry patta (1-2 twigs)
  • Ginger garlic / adrak lehsun (1 tbsp, freshly grated)
  • Coriander / dhaniya leaves (5-6 twigs)
  • Red chilli / lal mirch powder (1tsp)
  • Turmeric / haldi powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Asafoetida / hing powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Cumin / zeera powder (1 tsp)
  • Salt / namak (as per taste)
  • Mustard oil / sarson ka tail (2 tbsp)

  • Cook 3 cups of rice using 5 cups of water with a pinch of salt (or as per taste) and 1 tsp oil. Keep aside and allow it to cool.
  • In a non stick pan take 1-1.5 tbsp of oil and heat it. Once hot add mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and curry patta. Sauté for 10 sec.
  • Now add freshly grated ginger &  garlic, sauté till the raw smell of ginger & garlic vanishes. Add tomatoes and cook for 10 mins with lid closed till the tomatoes turn mushy.


  • Now add the coriander leaves followed by red chilli powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida powder and cumin powder. Mix and cook for another 3 -5 mins.


  • Once the spices are cooked well add the pre cooked rice to this and mix well.

  • Serve hot.

  • 1 cup rice = 200 gm (approx).
  • 1 cup water = 150 ml.
  • Use basmati rice instead of normal rice for an enhanced flavour.
  • The quantity of tomato depends on your taste, more tangy rice will requires more tomatoes.
