Lemon rice

Lemon rice is a simple rice, yet very flavourful !! I am amazed by different recipes which we can prepare very quickly with the Rice. If you have any leftover rice, you can make this rice so quick. I like this tangy rice.. if served with a raita and a pickle, I can finish it in no time. :) 





Ingredients:

3 cups cooked Rice
2-3 tbsp Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1/2" pc Ginger, finely chopped
2-3 Green chillies, chopped
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Urad dal
1-2 tbsp Cashews/Almonds
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
A pinch Asafoetida
7-8 Curry Leaves
2 tsp Oil or Ghee
Salt


Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds. Add cashews and urad dal. When they turn slight brown, add the ginger, green chillies and curry leaves. Saute for a minute. Now add the turmeric powder and asafoetida. Saute again and now add the cooked rice into the pan. Mix well. Add salt and finally the lime juice. Mix everything well so that the rice is uniformly yellow in color. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with any raita, pickle and pappad. Enjoy the simple and tasty rice !!


Serves 2-3

Notes:
*You can use any rice. I have used Basmati here.
*You can use any type of nuts. Peanuts are commonly used.
