I always keep asking my mom to prepare tomato rice for my lunch box as i always love tangy flavor + this dish tastes like briyani 😀 .Tip given by mom to get grainy rice is just rinse basmati rice for once and soak only for 10 mins and for all my biryani recipe i use this method to get grainy rice !!
