Tomato Pulao

Tomato pulao was a Sunday lunch specialty during my childhood. I would always ask for this when my mom gave an option to pick what i wanted her to make. It is a very simple rice dish that is cooked in tomato juice and some species. Normally my mom makes it by making the juice of the tomato, I have come up with an easy way by using store bought creamy tomato soup 🙂 ..
