I am a big fan of tomato and love to add them to every dish (almost ) . One afternoon I thought making tomato rice but with a unique combination of fried cabbage served along with raita .
Amazingly this turned out to be delicious with silky texture and the best part is the addition of fried cabbage while cooking.
This is one of my own recipes.
