Tomato Paste Pulihora

This is the simplest and fastest way to get my tomato flavor and yet satisfy the kids crave for pulihora (not regular).

Tomato Paste
Cooked rice
Fresh tomato (optional)  -1
green chillies
red chillies
mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Jeera - 2 tsp
Salt to taste

Method of preparation:
(1) Cook the rice so the grains are seperate and keep it aside.
(2) Take a pan and add oil to it
(3) Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, jeera. Let the mustard seeds splutter.
(4) Add the peanuts now and green chillies and red chillies at this point. Add asafoetida also.
(5) Add the fresh tomato pieces and the tomato paste at this point.
(6) Let the mixture cook for a minute or until it looses the raw smell from the tomato paste. Add the salt and turmeric at this point. Do not let the tomato paste dry too much. That will make it hard to spread the taste or for spreading the flavor for all rice.
(7) Mix the mixture to the rice thoroughly and have it with little curd and chutney or as is. Enjoy!!
