About Tomato Rice:
Tomato Rice is made in southern part of india in daily basis,this is also called Thakali (Tomato) Sadham (rice).This is made with white rice ,onions and tomatoes.

Spanish rice is a side dish made from white rice, tomatoes, garlic, onions, and other ingredients. It is traditionally made by sautéing the rice in a skillet until it is golden brown. Water or chicken broth is then added along with chopped tomatoes or tomato sauce.
Spanish rice is a popular dish in the American Southwest, which sometimes refers to the dish as "Mexican rice." However, Spanish rice and Mexican rice are relatively different; whereas Mexican rice sometimes uses cumin, Spanish rice uses saffron instead. The version of the dish cooked throughout Northern Mexico tends to be a more homogeneous character, often with just enough tomato and chili pepper to give the distinctive red-orange color and a smoky, garlic and onion-laden flavor. It is usually served as a side dish alongside other Mexican cuisine.
Personally i like my tomato rice plain and simple,if you re spice liker then you can add whole garam masala and ginger garlic paste while sauteeing the onions.
