Matar Methi Tomato Bhaat

Posting after a long time!

This is something I worked out myself..kind of a happy discovery. Hope you guys like it too

Ingredients (Makes for One person)
1 1/2 small vati rice
1 cup tomato puree (Paste of one tomato, green chilly, 1/2 inch ginger and 4 pods of garlic)
1 small vati fresh green peas
1 tsp kasoori methi
garam masala powder, salt, turmeric and jeera seeds

Heat oil in a pan/pressure cooker.
Splutter jeera (cumin seeds).
Add green peas and fry for a few seconds.
Toss in the masalas, salt and the tomato paste.
Add the rice, fry for a few seconds and add water according to the amt of rice.
Add the kasoori methi.
Cover and cook. If using a pressure cooker, keep on high flame till the first whistle, then cook on low for approx 7 minutes.

Serve hot with papad or raita. No pickle, this rice is pretty spicy in itself.
