Tomato Bath | Perfect Tomato Bath Recipe | How to make Tomato Bhath - This recipe is called Tomato Baath in Andhra Pradesh, Khichdi in Tamil Nadu. In Karnataka, it is not the Rava recipe but the Rice recipe that is called Tomato Baath.

What I have here is the Andhra Special Tomato Baath. In a way, this is nothing but Tomato Upma. Tomato bath his is served as Tiffin in Andhra weddings too.

When they add diced Tomatoes to Bombay Rava, I love it so much that I could eat it every day.
Usually, many people get irritated with the mention of Upma. But the same people would not mind eating it every day if it is made the right way with the right measures. This Tomato Baath is that good too. And it is perfect for lunch boxes.

Team this Tomato Baath with Spicy Gram Powder or Bengal Gram Chutney, and it tastes just superb.

Tips

Why is the restaurant Tomato Baath so tasty:

• The taste depends on how you roast the Rava. If the Rava is roasted on low flame, the Tomato Baath comes out in a nice colour and taste.

• If the Rava is roasted in Ghee, it gets a beautiful fragrance. If you like Ghee, try it.

• If the seasoning is fried to be crunchy, a little crunchiness stays even after cooking and tickles the palate.

• If Cashew Nuts are roasted first and added at the end, the Nuts will not become soft and stay crunchy. But if you like them soft, cook them along with the Rava.

• If the vegetables are cooked too soft, they become a paste and get mixed in the Upma, and you cannot sense them on your tongue. So cook them only to about 80 %.

• Add some Ghee at the end to make the Tomato Baath aromatic.
