There are various ways to cook Tomato Rice either using fresh/canned tomatoes or tomato puree. Even I have shared another recipe that were differ slightly from one another due to the ingredients/spices used. If you want to check the recipe click here. .
Easy Tomato Rice is one of my favorite weekend meal. It uses tomato puree instead of fresh tomatoes. Please take note. different brands of tomato puree produce extra sour to this dish. So use your own judgement as to how tangy you want the rice to be. Am using a concentrated tomato puree of Italian origin but for other brand, highly recommended to add more than 2 tablespoon.
A blend of tomato puree, onion, garlic and spices are used to create a bed of delicious fluffy rice. Easy Tomato Rice goes well with spicy chicken, lamb or vegetable gravy if you're a vegetarian.
