Lemon Rice

Lemon rice always comes in handy when I fall short of time to make lunch. Its so quick and easy to make that you never have to think of it in advance. You can always make the lemon mixture and keep it in the refrigerator for weeks. Mix it with rice when you want to to serve. The tangy, fresh taste of lemon is sure to keep you light and fresh. Try this with some spicy side dish like potato or raw banana fry and you sure will love it.

Serves...2 ppl
Serve option... warm

This is what u'll need....

Lemon juice 1/4 cup
Oil 4 tbspn
Peanuts 3 tbspn
Chana dal 2 tbspn
Mustard 1/2 tbspn
Chopped green chillies 1 tbspn
Curry leaves 
Turmeric 1/4 tspn
Salt to taste
Rice 1 cup

Here is the stir....
  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard to it. As soon as it starts cracking toss in chana dal, curry leaves, green chillies and peanuts 
  • Fry till the peanuts turn a slight golden color
  • Add turmeric, lemon juice and salt 
  • Boil for a minute and then turn the heat off. Some people boil the mixture till oil separates, that too tastes the same though, in that case add fried peanuts in the end else they will turn sour. This mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for a long time
  • Cook rice with a little salt, oil and let it cool for a while
  • Mix required amount of lemon mixture to the rice and blend it well carefully without breaking the rice much. Its ready to be served
