Tomato rice is a simple and easy recipe which is ideal for lunch box. If you have moreover leftover cooked rice try making this rice and have it with roasted papad or boiled egg. Mostly for dinner I make a new dish and if any cooked rice from lunch was too much we opt to make this rice and have it hot with papad.
