Tomato Pulao- Instant Tomato Rice

Tomato rice is what I have seen on the internet or some other food blogs. Initially I was caught by its bright red color, so I thought why not give it a try. It is very simple and quick to make. With a little twist of my own ingredients, I have finally made it. It came out really well. For people like me who wants to eat something or the other every night, this is a good choice. It is filling and very easy to make. Perfect for bachelors and it is great for packed lunch also. You can have onion raita or any raita of your choice with it.
