Tomato rice and my first award

Tulip_2009 083
I regret I didnt blogged for the past one week.I miss you all gals..I was little busy by throwing a small barbeque hawaii style party at our backyard this weekend.The party was great, my three year old son Adarsh and all the kids had a great time by enjoying the water sports and eating lots of grilled food..I will post some pictures here for sure..But I couldnt able to take lot of food pictures.Actually I planned but I couldnt make it out..So how you gals spend your long weekend?..
I had this tomato rice recepie in my draft since last week itself.. This tomato rice is very easy to prepare..It requires very less time..Even you can preapare it with some left over rice..It doesnt even require any special side dish...chips goes well with it...

You need
rice-2 cups
onion-1+1/2(medium size finely chopped)
tomato-2(medium finely chopped)
chili powder-1 tsp
garam masala powder-1/4 tsp
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
green chillies-3
ginger and garlic paste-1 tbsp

For Tempering

oil-2 tbsp
cinnamon-1 stick
fennel seeds-1/2 tsp


Cook the rice and keep it aside.

In a Wok/Kadai add some oil add the items for tempering and add onion fry until it is translucent.

Add the ginger garlic paste and fry until the raw smell goes off.

Add all the powders and fry for few minutes.

Now add the green chillies and tomato and fry it in a high heat fry it until it turns completely into a paste.

If you feel its little spicy at this stage you can add some lemon juice to it.

Mix it with the rice..If you have time you can put it in a dum for 10 minutes..

Thats it..
