Lemon Rice

This is a quick lunch to prepare...My mom used to prepare this and pack for lunch to school often..We used to enjoy this with Potato fry and pickle..It is also a way to use up leftover rice..



Rice (Sona Masoori/Basmati) - 1 cup
Lemon Juice - 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon
Oil -2 spoons
Mustard seeds,Urad dhall,Channa dhall - 1 teaspoon each
Cashews and peanuts - a few roasted in oil
Ginger - 1/2 inch finely chopped
Red chillies - 3
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Hing/Asafoetida - 1 pinch
Salt to taste


Cook the rice with two cups of water and allow it to cool..Mix 1 teaspoon of oil and the lemon juice with it and keep it aside..
In a pan take two spoons of oila nd splutter the mustard seeds,urad dhall and channa dhall one by one..Once they get roasted,add the turmeric powder,hing,chillies,chopped ginger and curry leaves..
Then add the roasted cashews and peanuts..
Mix this with the cooked rice..Add salt to taste..
You can also adjust the amount of lemon juice if you want it more soury..
Mix thoroughly without any rice lumps..
This goes well with any chutney,pickle or vegetable dishes of your choice..


This goes off to the event organised for International Women s Day by Kochtopf..
