Tomato Rice II

The ingredients of this version of tomato rice is similar to the previous one but with a little change. The taste also differs. Here is my another version of tomato rice....

Tomatoes - 6-7 (pureed)
Onion - 3 (chopped lengthwise)
Green peas - a handful
Ginger - garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon - a small stick
Bay leaves - 1
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves -  a few
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Red Chilli powder - as per taste
Salt - as per taste
Basmathi rice - 1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Oil / Ghee

Wash the basmathi rice and soak for half an hour. Heat oil / ghee in a pressure pan. Add mustard seeds and curry leaves. Add chopped onions, green peas, ginger garlic paste, cinnamon and bay leaves. Fry for few minutes till the onions become soft. Add the pureed tomatoes. Mix well. Now add red chilli powder, garam masala and salt. Fry for few minutes till the oil seperates. Add the soaked basmathi rice and required water. Check for the salt and spices. Close the lid and allow 1 - 2 whistles depending upon the pressure pan. Serve hot with raitha. Yummy tomato rice is ready.
