  Oil 2 Teaspoon (For frying)
  Red tomatoes 5 (Cut in halves. DonÂ’t go for tomatoes with a yellowish tinge)
  Garlic 8 Clove (40 gm)
  Green chillies 4 (slit in halves, the number of chilles usually depends on how spicy you want it)
  Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For frying)
  Cumin seeds 2 Teaspoon (jeera)
  Asafoetida 1 Pinch (hing)
  Bay leaves 4 (tej patta)
  Onion 1 Medium, cut lengthwise….looks good
  Cilantro 1 Tablespoon (for garnishing)


• Cook 2 cups rice and keep aside. Let it cool.
• Take 2 spoons oil and saute the all the items in Ingredients List 1. Without adding any water, let it cook for 7 minutes or till the tomatoes are finely cooked and become a paste. Cook it with the lid on.
• When this mixture cools, grind it to a very fine paste . It smells great!!!
• In a wok, add one large spoon oil and saute all the items in Ingredients List 2 (except cilantro) until the onions turn brown. To it, add the previously prepared tomato paste and stir until the mixture loses oil. It will take adout 5 minutes.
• Then, add the already cooked rice and mix really well on low flame…..let it stand for 2 minutes and then serve it hot garnished with a handful of chopped cilantro.
• This dish can be relished as is or with curd/yoghurt salad.

I certainly do love tomatoes... can I skip the 'hing' though, I don't like the flavor it brings... it won't matter much right?
