Egyptian Rice with Tomatoes

In Egypt there are more variations on rice cooking . We usually cook this rice if Tilapia fish is the viand for the day :) , supported with the presence of green salads .  Here , I am sharing with you how we do the simple steps .


4 cups of rice
3 tbsp butter or 1/4 cup oil
3 tomatoes (blended )
salt to taste
4 cups  water for the tomatoes


Wash the rice, drained and set aside.Prepare your blended tomatoes by pulsing them in a food processor for 3-4 times with water. Then strain and keep the juice aside and discard the sediments. In a medium pot,  pour the oil then fry 2-3  scoops of the rice. When it turned reddish brown, add all the other rice , salt and tomato juice . Bring to boil then simmer for 20 minutes or until you find the rice is cook already.
