Damatesli Pilavı (Tomato rice)

I love eating pilaf. As Asian, it's main dish for me every time, everywhere. I feel  "not full" whatever I eat without eating rice. ^,^ 
In Turkey, people cook pilaf different way from I usually do(which is always steamed and plain-Cause we usually eat our meal over that steamed plain rice)
Damatesli Pilavı means Rice cooked with tomato. The final taste is "almost" like our Indonesian Fried rice... "Almost" ^,^ .....I like it though.
Here I share how to make this Damatesli Pilavı
Materials and how to make it:
 1 ½ cups long grain rice, wash and soak ± 30 minutes, drained
 2 ½ tablespoons margarine
 ½ medium size onion, finely chopped
 2 medium tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped
 2 tsp salt or to taste
 1 ½ ~ 1 ¾ cup chicken broth / beef (or hot water)

Heat margarine in medium pan, saute onion until fragrant and wilted, put in rice and stir well. Combine tomatoes and stir for few minutes. Pour in chicken broth /beef (or hot water), salt then stir well. Cover pan with lid and reduce heat (at lowest heat). Cook up to± 20 minutes until broth is absorbed in rice. Turn off heat and let stand for several minutes without opening the lid.
Serve warm with some other dish you like or just as it and salad
Afiyet Olsun.
