Tomato pulihora

It is a simple rice recipe. It can be prepared easily and tastes really good. Those who cannot take tamarind can try this one. The main ingredient in this recipe is tomato. For the sour taste we need to add little tamarind. If we get country tomatoes with full of sour taste we need not add tamarind.

Green chillies-5
Curry leaves-handful
Salt-to taste
Turmeric powder-1tsp

For tadka:

Ground nuts-2tbsp

Pressure cook rice. For 1 cup rice add 2 cups of water. Cool rice in a wide plate.  
Grind tomatoes and tamarind pulp in a mixer grinder.  Extract juice. 
Chop ginger. Split green chillies. 


Heat oil in a deep fry pan add ground nuts and fry them. Add black gram and bengal gram and fry them also. 
When they turning into light brown shade add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and red chillies. Add asafoetida, green chillies, ginger pieces and curry leaves.
Allow them to splutter once and keep aside.
Again heat the pan and pour tomato juice. Add salt and turmeric powder. Allow it to boil. Let it boil till the it becomes thick like puree.
