Nothing like a relaxing weekend with two days off. It almost feels alien with working every other Saturday. So the time it's two days off, it feels like a long vacation. I know the feeling I will have when I get back to work on Monday. But that's for that day to feel right. Anyway with the kids at home, we decided we should go for a tour. It was a long drive, covering over 160 kilometres almost over 3 plus hours of travelling. All of us had fun. Nothing like having all of them under one roof and spending fun time.
Coming to the recipe, this was a quick Tomato Biryani I made for Konda using the Biryani Masala Powder. It came out so delicious and very quick to make. The rice had all the spice, masala to be consumed just as such. I was glad finding another quick one pot meal for Konda.
Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Onions - 1 medium
Tomatoes - 2 medium
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/4 tsp
Biryani Masala Powder - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil + Ghee - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnish
How to make the Tomato Biryani
Wash and cook rice as you normally do. Preferably you need to have rice not sticking together.
For making the biryani, heat a non stick pan, heat oil and ghee, add onion juliennes, sauté well till it turns colour.
Add ginger garlic paste, saute till the raw smells leaves. Then add finely chopped tomatoes, salt, biryani masala powder. Simmer with lid covered so that the tomatoes get soft.
Stir well so that the tomato turns to a sauce, cook on high flame so that all moisture gets evaporated.
Now add the cooked rice and mix well. Adjust spice if required. Sprinkle coriander leaves.
