Tomato Bhath

You'll need

1 cup rice (as big as a medium/small coffee mug)
3 cloves
8 pepper corns
1 tea-spoon garam masala powder
3 table spoon of coriander leaves
3 teaspoons margarine
half-tea-spoon salt
3 medium onions
3 large tomatoes
8 garlic flakes
1 inch ginger
2 green chillies (1 if you don't want it too hot)

Wash rice and let the water drain. Make a fine powder of the cloves and pepper. Cut onions into long pieces. Chop the tomatoes and coriander leaves. Chop the ginger and chillies finely.

Heat margarine in a pan. Once the margarine is hot, fry the garlic first followed by chopped ginger and onions. Add the rice and fry the mixture a little. Add the chillies and coriander leaves. Add the finely powdered cloves and pepper, salt and 2 cups of water.

Allow the whole thing to boil. When it is boiling, keep mixing well and reduce the flame to medium. Cover the pan and allow it to cook on low heat. Keep mixing properly. If required add a little water. Remove from the flame when rice is cooked.
