Tomato rice (Lunch box idea for kids)

   It is been hardly two days since my kid left to playschool, and now she has a runny nose :(  seems that some of her friends have so,  in  such case, many kids prefer to stay light and dont eat much.  So, we must choose their diet accordingly, here i used tomato(vitamin c  to develop resistance), garlic (antioxidant), jeera and peppercorn(which are usually suggested as an cure to cold, cough) to make this rice, and my home was completely flavoured by this rice.  Since i had specially prepared for my kid (with preference to cold), my husband also pretended to have cold, just to have a spoonful of rice  :)  such was the flavour and taste

     GUYS, do give a try , it came out really well .. and back to recipe

Ingredients required

4-5 tomatos paste(cooked on kadai till get mushy and grind the mixture), 10-12 garlic pods, few coriander leaves,  1 tsp jeera- 1/2 tsp peppercorn roughly ground in mortar and pestle, one cup cooked rice


Finely chop the garlic, in a kadai heat 3 tsp oil and add finely cut garlic

After the aroma is released and garlic turns brown, add the ground mixture of jeera and peppercorn

 Lateron, after 2 minutes, add tomato mixture and let this mixture cook for sometime

 Add finely chopped coriander leaves and cook till the water all evaporates, then add salt

 Add rice to it and mix thoroughly

 Tomato rice is ready to serve
