Brown Rice for dinner or Tomato Rice Recipe

Brown rice ,that i cooked today is not really the brown rice,which is refined and the barn is removed to make it white rice.I actually cooked the white rice to render a brown color to it.
Let me tell you how exactly,I turned the white rice to brown rice in the following rice Recipe .

Ingredients for Tomato Rice Recipe:

  1. Take 4 cups of white rice(saok the rice in water) reduce or increase the size according to your requirement.
  2. take 1 medium size chopped onion.
  3. cumin seeds,1 teaspoonful.
  4. 1 teaspoonful mustard seeds .
  5. 2 green chillies.
  6. 1/2 teaspoonful turmeric powder.
  7. salt to taste.
  8. take 2 large size tomatoes or if you have tomato paste ,take 2-3 tablespoonful.
  9. 6-7 big pods of garlic,chopped finely.
  10. 2 tablespoonful Olive Oil.
  11. 8-10 almonds.
  12. 1/2 a cup of chopped coriander leaves

Method for cooking rice ,the right way:

  • take a pot ,in which you want to cook the rice.
  • Add the oil in it and heat.
  • Add the mustard seeds and let them splatter.
  • Next add cumin seeds .
  • Add the almonds and fry them until golden brown.
  • Add the chopped onions into it,add a pinch of salt to hasten the onions to fry(golden brown).
  • Next add the chopped garlic.
  • add the chopped coriander leaves and green chillies.
  • Add 6 cups of water with the same cup that you measured the rice with.
  • Add the rice into the mixture.
  • cover the pot with a lid and let the mixture cook until the water dries and you start seeing the holes appearing on the topmost layer.At this point reduce the flame to the lowest heat and let it cook for 10-15 minutes.

for cooking the rice in the right way,is to soak the rice for atleast 30 minutes before cooking and for cooking the rice- 2 cups of rice requires 3 cups of water.

I called this Tomato Rice recipe as Brown rice just because of the appearance of the rice after it is cooked.
When cooked in the right way,this recipe of rice is easy to follow and tastes good ,Rice is also a very nutritious food because it is one of the four group of foods,Rice being one of the cereal food.

I hope you enjoyed this delicious recipe of rice and i also hope you have learned to cook the rice in a right way,and the rice looks like pearls.because each grain of rice is separated and looks great.
