Tomato Rice

Plain rice daily or you will prefer for a change this Tomato Rice? Trust me, effortless made. Thus, why not, why don't you consider (Jeera/Cumin Rice) Tomato Rice? For me personally, sometimes plain rice can be a killer on my palates and even when I heightened rice to another level by adding some ingredients, I am still rice cooker depended. So (Chinese Fried Rice, Belacan Fried Rice)? Rice elevated by tomato, shallots, ginger and garam masala.  

2 cups rice - wash and drain off excess water
2 (abt 230g) tomato - slice thinly
6 shallots - sliced
1 inch ginger - sliced
A pinch of garam masala
3 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Water as needed

When oil is heated, saute shallots, tomatoes and ginger.
Add rice, garam masala and salt.
Fry for 3-4 mins and then tip rice mixture into rice cooker.
Pour water as needed (generally 3 cups for 2 cups of rice) and let it cook.
Once cooked, fluff up.
