Lemon Rice

Pin It Now!
For ages lemon rice along with yogurt and tamarind rice has been the travel food for umpteen number of travelers.Addition of lemon a natural preservative prevents the rice from getting spoilt and helps it adjust to hot temperatures.Tangy and delicious rice my fav combination with this is masal vada and papad.

Ingredients

Juice of 1 whole lemon
3 tbsp roasted peanuts
4 green chillies slit in half
1 tbsp roasted cashews broken
1 sprig curry leaves
1 fistful of chopped cilantro
Few dashes of hing
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp mustard,cumin and chana dal each
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Method
Heat oil in a pan add chana dal,mustard and cumin seeds,when chanadal gets roasted and mustard splutters add curry leaves,slit chillies,hing,cashews,peanuts.Switch the heat off add turmeric and lemon juice, stir well.Add salt,cilantro leaves,rice and mix to blend well.Enjoy!!
