  1. I had a lot of grape tomatoes that I had to finish before they turned bad and I tried out this recipe with one regular tomato and rest all grape tomatoes…My whole family enjoyed the tomato rice meal thanks to you! My difficult to please hubby also complimented on this one! Without any garam masala, with only pudina leaves this was such an aromatic delight, yet not overpowering! Love your recipes 🙂

  2. I tried this with normal rice.Turned out well. Very tasty and authentic tomato rice. Easy to make. Evergreen recipe.
