Tomato Rice recipe


The Tomato rice recipe is from the South of India region. Making tomato rice is quite simple and quick. Within a few minutes, you are done with a yum rice recipe.

If you are looking for a different taste rice recipe, then this is it. Do try this recipe where the ingredients used are all in your kitchen.

Mostly my all recipes are the ones with few ingredients or whatever is available in the kitchen pantry. Preferably I use fresh ingredients in my kitchen. Even the Ginger-garlic paste I make is fresh. Fresh ingredients do a lot of difference to the taste as well as health.

In our southern region, the tomato rice recipe is called Thakkali Sadam.

Let’s check out this simple recipe

Tawa pulao recipe


Purvanchal Tadka

Originated on the streets of Mumbai, this pulao has created a benchmark in every Mumbaikar’s list of food. We all love the flavour, the aroma and the taste.

Tawa pulao has a very unique taste due to the pav bhaji masala used in it. Famously made on a huge tawa so the name Tawa pulao. You can use kadhai as huge Tawa is only owned by street vendors. The taste is very much the same, so no worries.

The veggies used are the same as the ones in pav bhaji. The trick here is the butter is used not oil, if want you can divide half portion with butter n half with oil.

This recipe requires cooked rice, one can use leftover rice or just cook the rice two hours before making Tawa pulao.

Simple and easy rice or say one-pot recipe, enjoy this with some pickled onions.

Do try this recipe as it’s quick to make and easy to finish 😁 for the pav bhaji recipe here’s the link Pav-Bhaji
