Tomato Rice with a twist....

I have made tomato rice before. But I thought this was my best effort. So here goes...
Cooked rice - do not cook the rice too soft. - 2 cups
Tomato - 1 medium
Tomato puree - 1/4 cup
Spring onions - 2
Onion - 1 large
Garam masala - 2 cloves, a little cinnamon
Jeera - 1 tbsp
Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste.
Chop onion, spring onion and the green part of the onion too.
Dice the tomato fine. I have used part tomato and part puree. If you use all tomatoes make sure you blanch and peel them otherwise the peels can ruin the final product.
Heat oil in a wok
Add the jeera and the garam masala
Add the onion, spring onion - both the onion part and the green stalks, saute add the diced tomato, and the garlic paste
Saute till the mixture turns thick.
Add tomato puree. turmeric.
Keep on fire for a while - the mixture should be thick.
Take off fire.
Add to the rice ( which should be slightly cool to avoid the grains getting mashed while stirring in the mixture)
Add salt and tomato mixture
Blend gently.
Serve hot.

( the younger one does not see 'any twist' to the recipe, but I like the sound of it - so the title stays!)
