Tomato Rice

I needed a quick fix lunch for my 1 year old who goes to day care now. And if you are working and have to send lunch box with your kid to school, the need to cook quick, but healthy meals is the perhaps the most pressing item on your list. This led me to search for one-pot healthy meals. I am in no way a innovator when it comes to cooking. Tried and tested is what I believe in and my mom suggested Tomato Rice. This recipe is courtesy to her. Both me and my son enjoyed the meal!

Carrots - cut in to small pieces
