Very nice, very similar to the tomato and lamb rice that my in laws make. I added some tomato paste along with the tomatoes to make the tomato flavor stronger. To get the rice really nice, I first brought the rice and mixture to a boil on high heat, then turned it on low heat and simmered for the 20 minutes, then I took the pot off the heat and put tea towel under the cover and left it for 30 minutes.
