Tomato Rice – With Goodness of Tomatoes

Tomato Rice Recipe; Make Tomato Rice with Fresh or Leftover rice & Tomato Juice

Tomato rice is a popular rice recipe from Southern part of India. And is usually made with leftover rice. Since, there is something always left overs from various meals & if you are creative, you can mix stuff and end up making something out of nothing. And this is great recipe for vegans too.

However, in this particular case I cooked rice afresh and used leftover tomato juice to make tomato rice. As you can see I was still using something that was left over. And I guess it is the first with tomato juice. Whatever said and done, this rice dish tasted fresh and delicious. You can always use my tomato rice recipe as a quick snack or a snappy tiffin lunch. It is incredibly simple to make and kids love it too.

To make Tomato Rice, you can use any kind of cooked or steamed rice. And you can also make Tomato Rice with freshly made rice as I did in this case. All you need to ensure is that the grains are well separated. You can also add a few roasted peanuts to it (which I didn’t, though I added chana dal). You can snack on it or have it as lunch. By far, tomato rice is a splendid recipe loved by all. My 4 year old niece absolutely loved it. You can have tomato rice with a sabzi or just like that. I served it with some plain curds. If you wish, you can pair it with some raita, papad & a green salad.
