Hello Dear Friends,

Today I decided to try a different recipe for iftar. Actually, I was going to make rice with tomatoes, but when I saw the eggplants in the crisper, I said, "How good would it be to have eggplant in this rice?"

After all, it happened :) We loved the combination of Rice+Tomato+Eggplant as a family!

In this recipe, I took the rule of 1 cups for 1,5 cup of rice, but there is a trick.

make rice

Since you add grated tomatoes to the rice, if you add 3 glasses of water, it will become runny. For this reason, measure the tomato grater in the glass that you measure the rice in.

For example, since my tomatoes are small, they came out 1-1 fingers less than 2 glass of water, so I finished it by adding some water to it. Then, after roasting the rice, I added 2 glasses of water and it was just right.

If you follow the measurements, you will prepare a great pilaf.
