Lemon RiceLemon Rice is one of the simple recipes. You can have it as breakfast or for lunch. It is often prepared on special occasions and as-well as on festival days. During Vinayaka chavithi and pongal festivals we find this mouth tingling recipe.

Ingredients:

Basmati rice – 2 cups

Lemon juice – 5 tsp.

Mustard Seeds – 2 tsp.

Urad Daal – 2 tsp.

Chana Daal – 2 tsp.

Dried Red chillies – 3

Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp.

Asafoetida – A pinch

Roasted Peanuts – 1/2 cup

Curry leaves – 11

Grated coconut – 1 tbsp.

Salt – As per your taste

Vegetable oil – 2 tbsp.



Lemon rice preparation:

 

  • Wash the rice and add 4 cups of water, little salt and pressure cook for 1-2 whistles.

 

Tip 1: If you are cooking for small quantity then use measurement of 1:2 ratio (rice:water)

Tip 2: If you are cooking with old rice then soak it in water for 10-15 minutes before cooking.

 

  • You can also cook out side (electic cooker/microwave) just as you cook for daily use
  • Once the rice is cooked, let it cool. Keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in a kadai (frying pan), add dried red chillies(break them into two), asafoetida, chana dal and urad dal.
  • Fry them until the dals chage their color to light brown. Add mustard seeds and peanuts
  • When you find mustard seeds crackling, add curry leaves. Fry for 10 seconds more.

 

Tip: Take care while putting curry leaves as oil or flalme may raise.

 

  • Add turmeric powder and stir well. Add cooked rice, lemon juice and salt

 

Tip: While taking lemon juice, add little salt so that juice doesnt turn sour.

 

  • Stir entire ingredients well. Garnish with grated coconut.
  • Lemon rice is ready. Serve hot.
