Curried Tomato Peanuts Rice  – Winter is all about comfort food and adds a weekend to it and it’s all about one pot recipes or you can say easy-peasy 15 minutes recipes.

Have you already made plans for this weekend or want to take it easy …. at least that’s what I’m doing.

I mean ever since Thanksgiving, there has been so many festivities/parties and go to events that I’m seriously so looking forward to tucking in with some cozy comfort food.

And watch tons of TV or maybe that’s also too much….just catching up on sleep and read book – Sound’s like a plan, Right?

When I say ‘cozy – comfort-food – tucking in’ there’s ONLY one recipe that comes to my mind Curried Tomato Peanut Rice  !!

Curried Tomato Peanut Rice
It’s seriously is so easy to make and most of the ingredients are already there in your kitchen pantry.

Just saute and mix everything together for 10-15 minutes and you are ready with this ‘Gorgeous Red-Orange Rice Dish’ that takes you to a comfort-zone in every bite.

To make it even more simple, I’m using ‘  Zesteez – Tomato Chunky Chutney‘ to cook the entire dish hence there is no chopping/grinding process involved.

The chutney is delicious and has a mild flavor that works perfectly with any snacks or dish.


I made a big batch of this Curried Tomato Peanuts Rice to last me at least 2 meals (that sure is a Lazy Alert) over the weekend.

And even while making and clicking pictures to share with you’ll hear, I’ve already nibbled on some of it πŸ˜‰

Do give ‘Zesteez’ a visit and see their amazing chutney.


***************************** Have a Happy – Fun Weekend ******************************
