TOMATO PILLAF RICE / PILAF TOMATO



Pilaf is a class of rice dishes, most commonly referring to rice cooked in a seasoned broth with meat or vegetables.

This simple and tasty dish can easily be made with ingredients likely to be found in your pantry and fridge.  It’s a red tomato pilaf a.k.a as “domatorizo” in Greek.  It simply translates as tomato rice. Pilafs are a wonderful addition to a dinner and can easily be changed to suit your favourite spices.  In this instance I’ve used "briyani powder, evaporated milk with tomato puree and Heinz tomato  soup.  I varied from the original recipe by adding carrots, fresh tomatoes and basmati rice.  It was so delicious I devoured most of it in one go!  I loved adding "dalca", ayam masak merah, pappadom and cucumber salsa  to make it a complete meal.

Kalau kita panggil Nasi Tomato, di Greek nasi ini dinamakan "domatorizo" mana kalau di Mediterranean dan Timur Tengah di namakan pula "pillaf", sebenarnya nasi ada banyak variasinya...bergantung kepada kita yang menyediakanya. Dari yang mudah kepada yang sukar. 

Pillaf ini kalau dari segi terjemahanya bermakna nasi yang dimasak bersama daging atau sayuran...dalam resipi ini saya biarkanya kosongnya...cuma saya masukkan lobak merah yang diparut. hirisan tomato segar dan daun ketumbar. Untuk mendapatkan hasil yang mantap saya tumis pakai rempah briyani sedikit...biarkan ada rasa rempah sedikit ..bila dibuat sebegini nasi..jadi sedap makan begitu aje...dilemakkan lagi dengan susu, cair. Biasanya dihidang bersama dalca, ayam merah, jelantah dan pappadom. Kalau extra rajin buah sedikit sambal pudina...pasti lagi mantop.
