Tomato Rice

I never heard about tomato rice, lemon rice and jeera rice till I goes Hyderabad as a part of my MSc dissertation. First I felt very discomfort about food later I started to love these. Now I love tomato rice and often prepare this. I prefer to add more spices in it. Poppadom is a nice combination for this and I love coconut chutney with this.

Tomato                                                : 4 (slice into cubes)
