Thakkali sadham or Tomato rice is a simple, delicious South Indian rice recipe which is made using lots of tomatoes. I have shown the way of cooking it in pressure cooker.
This recipe is very easy to make and I have used very less masalas so you can get the taste from tomatoes. It can also be made with precooked rice. Precooked rice can be added to the tomato gravy prepared and served.
I have used 4 green chillies, red chilli powder with coriander powder mix, fennel seeds, asafoedita powder, turmeric powder in this recipe. In case you want to reduce green chillies, you can. Otherwise there is not much masalas used and it is made in homestyle. I haven’t made it in pulao style😊
Thakkali sadham is normally made with ponni rice in my hometown. If you want to use basmati rice, you can. Using basmati rice gives a good flavor but will give briyani-style. This goes well with boiled egg along with any variety of raita by the side.
