Tomato Bath / Tomato Pulav

I made tomato pulav today for breakfast. I had plans of making vegetable pulav but i had very less time. And this would save me some time from cutting veggies. It was spicy and tangy. Hubby loved it. It tasted even better when i had it a bit later.


Rice – 1 cup (I used Basmati, soaked for 15 mins)
Tomatoes – 3-4 small – pureed
Whole Garam masala (cloves -4, Cinnamon – 1 inch, green cardamoms – 2, bay leaf- 1)
Onion – 1 large – chopped
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Green chillies – 3 – chopped finely
Coriander leaves – ½ cup
Mint leaves – ¼ cup
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Red chilli powder – 2 tsp (you can use less)
Coriander powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala powder – ½ tsp
Coconut milk – 1 and half cup
Oil – 3 tbsp


Heat oil in a pressure pan and add whole garam masala. Once they start spluttering, add onion and saute till they turn golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste, green chillies, coriander leaves and mint leaves and saute for a while. Now add the tomato paste and saute it till the oil separates.

Add turmeric, red chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder and give it a mix. Now add coconut milk and bring to a boil. Add salt and check for seasoning. Add the soaked rice and mix it gently. Close the lid and pressure cook it up to 3 whistles. Serve hot with raitha or chutney.

My Notes

ü  You can add chopped tomatoes also instead of puree.

ü  I cooked this rice in coconut milk and hence I have not added water. You can skip coconut milk and instead add water to it.

ü  If you are not using coconut milk and adding water then you can also add 2 tbsp of coconut paste to enhance the flavour.

ü  The quantity of water or the coconut milk depends on the type of rice you are using. Since I am using 1 cup of basmati rice, 1 and half cup of coconut milk was enough. Remember tomato puree also will leave out some water.
