How to Make Tomato Rice Bake in Foil

  • Wash, soak 1.5 cups basmati rice in salted water for 30 mins. Pour one tin tomato puree into a non-stick pan.
  • Add 2 cups water, salt, 3 broken dry red chillies and 1 tsp soy sauce.
  • Stir and bring to a boil. Add drained rice.
  • Bring back to a boil. Add 1 bay leaf, 2 cloves and 1/2-inch stick cinnamon.
  • Simmer on low with a loose-fitting lid.
  • When done, each grain would separate and all liquid will be absorbed.
  • Press a grain to test if done.
  • Add 1/2 cup grated cheese and mix well and transfer to a large sheet of aluminium foil.
  • Fold corners up to form a packet.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degree C for 10 mins.
  • Serve hot, with stir-fried vegetables, or a wholesome salad.
