Simple dinner: Tomato Rice

Yes, am heading back to the kitchen with simple meals when the MIL wasn’t in town. Actually, I didn’t really cook but I tasked the helper to follow the recipes for simple meals that she could whip up in a jiffy. This whole tomato rice recipe had been one that I’ve been wanting to try as it made waves on my social media feeds.

Here’s the original recipe that you could follow:

And here’s our version at home! Instead of just the tomato rice, I threw in some shimeiji mushrooms, chopped chicken pieces upon the recommendation of a friend.
