I stuck to Meera Sodha's recipe for the Tomato Pilau, the only two things that were different. I used dried curry leaves as I am not easily able to find fresh where I live; and secondly, this was due to my impatience - I did not brown the onions well, hence why my Pilau is not as golden, but let me tell you it was still delicious, moreso because of my homegrown tomatoes!
D loved it and said I should make this for our American guests when they come in September. Hopefully we will still have tomatoes coming from the greenhouse, in which case I shall be making it again.
Meera suggests serving it with a fresh green salad. I told my husband this and he rolled his eyes and suggested that I should have thrown in some of our homegrown green beans to the Pilau. Instead he had his with a dollop of mango chutney, I think it was a good decision. If I have tempted you once again, then please check out the full recipe.
