South Indian style Tomato Rice with lots of spices! This is a favorite way to make tomato rice, it tastes so good with pickle and a side of yogurt! It’s also known as Thakkali Sadam in Tamil. It’s simply rice cooked with lots of tomatoes and lots of spices. I really went overboard with tomatoes in this recipe because I wanted the flavors of tomato to shine through. This rice is seasoned with curry leaves, mustard seeds, green chilies, garam masala, black pepper, chili powder, and also some whole spices! Usually tomato rice is very spicy and people enjoy it that way. However keeping in mind my taste buds, my tomato rice is not that spicy.
