Cook rice in a manner where all the grains are separate .Take care to add a spoon of salt when you are cooking rice. Set aside the cooked rice. Dice Tomatoes in small 1/4 " pieces , shred Ginger ,cut Garlic in very small pieces ,shell the peas and dice the Carrots in small pieces. Also cut Onions in small pieces. 

Now take half the quantity of oil in a kadai and set it on medium heat, add Mustard and Jeera seeds and when the Mustard starts to crackle, add Tomatoes and stir fry on medium heat till the Tomatoes start leaving oil. Now add Diced Onions and stir fry till Onions become Translucent and soft, now add cut Garlic and Shredded Ginger and fry in the Gravy for three to four minutes. Finally add 1 spoon of Garam Masala to Tomato mix and set it aside after frying the Garam Masala for fifteen to twenty seconds. Some people prefer to fry Garlic first and later add Tomatoes and Onion, but I am not of that view. 

Steam cook Carrots and Peas after adding a bit of salt and sugar to retain the natural colours 

At this stage, add salt, Chilli powder, Turmeric powder, Black pepper powder, Green Chillies and curry leaves. Heat the mixture for about two minutes. The consistency of Tomato Gravy should be thick like Puliohara Gojju. 

Now when the Tomato Gojju is medium cold, take one ladle of oil in a Tempering ladle and add cinnamon and Cloves and heat. When the cloves start puffing, pour the tempering in Gojju.Mix it well and finally start mixing Vegetables and Tomato Gravy and Rice layer by layer. Finally mix the whole thing thoroughly and reheat in a large mouthed Vessel with steam only. Your Tomato Rice is ready.!!! Serve piping hot.
