LEMON RICE



This is yet another simple  and also a traditional South Indian Rice.It has been a long time, I prepared it.I still remember those days when my mom used to prepare this when planned for a long journey, along with a special coconut chutney(this is different from our usual chutney we prepare for Idli's /Dosa's). I should say they both go very well. Will soon post that coconut recipe,now lets go to the rice. :)

How to prepare this lemon rice?


For this Lemon rice you need

1 cup of rice
1 large Lemon
1 tsp. of mustard seeds
1 tsp. of urad dal
2 - 4 red chillies (Acc. to ur taste)
1 tsp. of Chana Dal
A handful of roasted peanuts
1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder
A pinch of asafoetida
A sprig of curry leaves
A small piece of ginger (Choped finely)
2 tsp. of sesame oil
Oil
Salt

Preparation

Squeeze lemon , add turmeric powder and keep it aside.

Pressure cook the rice for 2 whistles, allow the rice to cool, add sesame oil to it and mix well.

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, when they stop spluttering add urad dal and saute it.

Add channa dal,split and add the red chillies, chopped ginger along with asafoetida.Saute it for few seconds.

Finally add the peanuts and curry leaves .

Now add these to the rice , along with the lemon juice and salt. Mix them gently.

Lemon rice is ready to be served..............


Serve it with Potato fry/Potato chips and enjoy.........:)

Note:

Don't skip ginger, as it gives a nice flavor to the rice.

For more taste and richness, you can add cashews.

You can also prepare this with leftover rice.

The color of the rice , depends on the turmeric powder you are adding.
