Mexican Tomato Rice


Mexican tomato rice is a little different version of Indian Tomato rice.This tangy rice is a yummy dish which can be prepared with less effort & spices.
I did some changes to the recipe which can be good to Indian taste buds & served it with peanut chutney & curd :)


Ingredients

2 Cups of rice
1 Cup onions chopped
4 Garlic cloves finely chopped 
2 Red chillis sliced
2 Cups of tomatoes diced 
2 Tsp cumincoriander powder
1 Tsp garlic chilli powder
Cilantro for garnish 
1 Tsp olive oil
1 Tsp jeera
Salt 

Seasoning
2 Tsp Olive oil
1 Tsp Mustard 


Heat a pan with oil add jeera to it. Fry till they start jumping & add rice to pan. Do a lite fry of rice. Cook rice with 4 cups of water ( Varies with rice) & once it is done cool it.
Now heat a pan with oil add garlic and chillis. Fry them till garlic is done or turns brown.Then mix onion to pan and fry it till they turned transparent.Add tomatoes to pan along with salt and allow them to cook with a closed lid. 
Once tomatoes are done add cumincoriander , chilli powder to pan. Cook them for 10mins & switch of heat.
Mix tomato mixture carefully to rice without breaking it & garnish with cilantro. 

Serve with Tortilla chips or Indian chutney  or with curd.


Note:
1. I used sona masuri rice.You can replace it with basmati rice if you want. 
2. Replace green chillis with jalapenos for more spiciness.
