When life gives you tomatoes, make tomato rice.
With tomatoes being a year round produce in India, it’s common to find regional versions of tomato rice.
For this recipe, I’ve used touches from the south and western cuisines of India to create a simple time-tested recipe for gluten-free and vegan minty tomato rice.
The result: aromatic and moist tomato rice with the taste of fresh mint which will fill your senses with mouthwatering joy.
Mint and Tomato Basmati Rice served steaming hot makes a wholesome entree or a versatile side to your favorite chicken tikka or vegetable.
