Tomato Peas Pulao Recipe – Tasty & Colorful:

Tomato rice is a main course dish which is colourful, tangy, yet delectable and tickles your taste buds. Basically, tomato rice is cooked plain without any other vegetable.

But I prefer adding peas as the kids would love it and the colour of the green peas adds up to the texture of the tomato pulao. Try it out.
