Mum's Tomato Rice Recipe - Thakkali Sadam Recipe


Tomato rice is my all time favourite. This is my mom's version..I have shared a video recipe in my blog of this recipe and it got so many views as well. But later i deleted those videos due to some issues. I got so many mails from my viewers asking me for that recipe, so i thought of sharing it in my step by step picture form and i also made a video too...
