Tomato Rice ... 番茄饭

After cooking  'Ayam Masak Merah', i am interested to cook Tomato Rice.
Since the linky is reopen for linking some have not linked post i took this opportunity to cook this. 
趁着linky从开, 由于要link上没被link上的一些贴子. 我就趁机煮这个番茄饭. 

This Tomato Rice is very flavourful and the texture is very nice. 这饭口感很爽口,味道也超棒.

I sprinkle some fried shallot for extra aroma. 加了点炸红葱, 味道更香 ^_^

2 tbsp oil
1 small tomato, chopped ( i omit this)
1/2 onion, sliced
2 shallots, chopped
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, smashed
