Com Sot Ca Chua - Vietnamese Tomato Rice
from: Kiersten Phae

I got this recipe from my Husband's family. It's an easy way to jazz up the usual rice.


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 small tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 green onion, diced
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Heat Oil over medium heat, add shallots and garlic. Saute until soft.

Add tomatoes and sugar, cook until thickened.

Add Rice and stir until completely incorporated.

Add spring onions, salt & pepper.


Can garnish with coriander leaves, if desired.
