Tomato Rice

Rice is pretty much what we eat daily. But it can't possibly be plain white rice for every meal. I make fried rice (kampung fried ricebelacan fried rice and Chinese fried rice) when there's leftover cooked rice for a convenient meal. Other times, it's simply flavouring rice with a few ingredients to elevate the taste (cumin rice). This rice dish made with tomato, ginger, shallots and garam masala isn't anything spectacular. But as said, flavoured up and tasty.

2 cups rice - wash and drain off excess water
2 (abt 230g) tomato - sliced thinly
6 shallots - sliced
1 inch ginger - sliced
1/4 tsp garam masala/all spice powder
3 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Water as needed

When oil is heated, saute the shallots, tomatoes and ginger.
Add in the rice, garam masala and salt.
Fry for another 3-4 mins and then put into the rice cooker.
Pour in the normal amount of water and let it cook.
Once cooked, fluff up.

  10. rice is my staple food too.. but trying to learn to adapt on potatoes and other alternative because rice could be expensive.
