Tomato rice is one of those MUST dishes. You have no idea how much this simple rice dish is super delicious, full of flavour and easy to make.
Tomato in Farsi is gojeh farangi so tomato rice or Dami-e gojeh farangi is a lovely vegetarian dish and is popular in most of cities and towns in Iran. I know tomato rice is popular in India and Mexico as well with lots of chilli in. But Persian version is not very spicy and hot, let say it is mild but if you love spicy meals, so go head and add chilli as much as you wish 🙂
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 400g canned chopped tomato

Heat the oil in a pan and sauté chopped onion until soft. Add chopped tomato and turmeric, season with salt and chilli flakes. Stirring and sauté tomato for 5 minutes over medium heat.
Remove it from the heat. Add cooked rice and stir all ingredients well.
Rice is ready 🙂
