In case you are wondering how is a girl from north making southern Indian dishes, well when I was in college my room mate was from south India  and her mother made amazing Lemon rice and tomato rice. Being a rice lover myself, I enjoyed these rice dishes a lot, so learned from her. And had been making it ever since. My kids love it too 🙂

Tomato rice is best served with Raita and Pappad .
