COOKS WISDOM

TIP 1

1. Usually Amma makes the rice ahead and cools it completely. Make sure the rice grains are separate and not sticking to each other.

TIP 2

2. Adding kashmiri red chillis adds colour to the tomato rice and is medium spicy. You can add or reduce the amount of green chillis as per your spice tolerance.

TIP 3

3. For more interesting flavors you could add roasted and toasted peanuts without the skin.  

TIP 4

4. Adding corriander leaves is a must. It adds amazing flour to tomato rice.
