Tomato rice (possibly with coconut?)

anakalia | Sep 12, 2011 07:03 PM

Hi everyone -- I have basmati rice, a can of coconut milk and 3 ripe tomatoes sitting on my countertop. I'm obsessed with the idea of making some sort of gloppy, juicy savory rice dish with it, but I don't know how.

I was thinking Indian was the way to go, and I've searched the Internet, but I'm either pulling up dry rice dishes which just use pureed tomato and coconut milk to cook the rice in, or I'm finding tomato curries. I don't want either one of those... instead, I'm imagining some sort of wet rice dish with large chunks of tomatoes in it that haven't completely cooked down and lost that garden-fresh flavor... any ideas? This does sound tasty, right? Or is it just me...?

I did make a tomato-grated coconut curry one time that was pretty good, and I guess, worst-case, I can just remake that and pour it over the rice, but I'm hoping for a better recipe idea.
