Hi Maya, once again, hello from San Antonio-you may remember I messaged you before about your cousin being my Dad’s PhD student. Thanks for maintaining such a wonderful blog-this is my go-to resource when I am stuck and don’t know what to cook, whether it be for guests or my day to day cooking.
One request-I love south Indian rice dishes such as tomato rice. Since you seem to be on an Andhra kick, is there any way we could get an authentic tomato rice recipe? Mango rice and lime rice are old favorites too-so good to pack for lunches etc.
Thanks again and keep up the good work!
Yeah, I do remember you Vinita.. Sorry for the delay in replying, had been busy for the past couple of days. Thanks for your kind words about the blog. I will surely post the recipe for tomato rice sometime. You can check out lemon rice and other variety rice recipes here
