Tomato Rice is a delicious combination of Indian and Mexican flavors which come together to create the perfect comfort food option!
We all need some comfort food occasionally (especially that which can be cooked quickly too!) and this tomato rice sure is one of them for me 🙂
Its time for Blog Hop Wednesday and while I was browsing through the blog assigned to me for this week, I realised how we pick some recipes instantly and some just don’t even give it a chance. While I was thinking, my thoughts wandered away (hello don’t you say whats new now!) to comfort food.
Don’t we all have comfort food? That food we turn to when we are upset and that food we turn to when we are happy. Food that give us comfort. Somewhere high up in the list of comfort food comes spicy tomato rice and raita for me. I realised I don’t have the recipe of that up on the blog. In fact, after digging through the blog a little, I realised, I hardly have recipes of any of my comfort food up on the blog. So this will be the first post in comfort food series that hopefully I will be doing.
I tried the tomato rice version on Ammu’s blog for today for dinner and it turned out pretty yum. A little strange but nonetheless yum, strange because it nicely balances the Mexican flavors of jalapenos and olive oil with Indian masalas. I served it with the burnt garlic chutney and boondi raita. The combination turned out to be awesome. A super simple but yet hurried veg meal, for a day when I don’t feel like doing anything elaborate and idea is to get something on the table fast and quick, this is perfect!
