Tomato Rice with Jeeraga Samba Rice | Thakkali Satham

Tomato rice,the quick & easy to prepare one pot meal.I have seen many people who are very crazy about tomato rice including ST, but i'm not big fan of it. I prepared this rice only if ST insist me to make.One time, when i prepared this rice, i had used jeeraga samba rice(normally i use basmati rice, that time i ran out of basmati rice in my pantry) and the tomato rice turned out so flavorful. The unique aroma from the jeeraga samba rice goes well with the tomato flavor and even i liked it so much.
After that, if it's tomato rice, then it should be prepared with jeeraga samba rice.Trust me on this & try it , you must be amazed by the flavor of the rice.From start to end, it hardly take around 20 to 25 mins to make this rice including chopping.As the rice itself is so flavorful,you don't need any side dish, simple onion raita and some chips are enough for this rice.But today i have prepared egg pepper masala along with raita and the lunch was so yummy.
