Thakkali Sadam (Tomato Rice)


Tomato rice is a South Indian delicacy, usually served with pickles or raita. As the name suggests, it is rice flavored with tomatoes and freshly roasted and ground lentils. This is the first time I'm making thakkali sadam and loved it.
Recipe Courtesy: Jai and Bee's Jugalbandi
I have to admit I couldn't help using cloves, cardamom, Malabar leaves (Indian bay leaves), peppercorns and cinnamon stick for flavor as suggested in Varsha's Will-O'-the Wisp. I love the aroma of those spices that spreads into the room while cooking with them.
