Lemon Rice


One of my husband’s favourite, I am going to try this soon. Thanks ! 

Rice 3/4 cup
Onion(optional) 1/2 cup
Green chillies 3-4
Lemon juice 1 and 1/2 tbl spns
Mustard seeds 1/2 tea spn
Urad daal 1 tea spn
Curry leaves 5-6
Ground nuts(optional) 1 tbl spn
Turmeric a pinch
Oil 1 tea spn

Lemon juice quantity can be increased or decreased according to individual taste.

Cook rice in pressure cooker (Rice should not become too soft, ie the rice grains should be seperate after cooking, otherwise it becomes paste when mixed, So use a bit less water compared to normal, instead the rice from previous day can also be used).
Heat oil and add mustard seeds and urad daal. When they start popping, add green chillies, curry leaves. Fry for a minute. Add ground nuts and onion, turmeric, fry till the onions turn slightly brownish.
Add the rice, salt and mix well. Turn off the heat and add the lemon juice. Mix well.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 15min
