Vagarela Tomato (Leftover) Rice

This is my all time favourite comfort food. We used to get to eat this for Saturday lunch when we were little. It is the first dish I cooked when I was away from home (at University). I specially cooked the rice to make it! So next time you have left over rice try it, you won't regret it!

Ingredients
2 cups leftover rice
3 tomatoes; peeled and liquidised
1/2 cup yogurt
2 tspn oil
1 tspn mustard seeds
3-5 curry leaves
2 green chillies; split horizontally till the stalk
1/2 tspn tumeric
pinch of salt


1. Heat the oil, add the mustard seeds, curry leaves and chillies, let them splutter and pop.
2. Add the tomatoes, cook for about 5-8 minutes.
3. Add the tumeric, stir for 2 minutes
4. Add the rice, mix, add the yogurt and salt and mix well
5. cover and cook for 10 minutes, so that all the rice has heated through.
6. Serve with a green salad
