Lemon Rice Recipe

Hello people, I was feeling so lazy to prepare any elaborate dinner for my husband, so thought of making simple south Indian food the lemon rice with french beans subzi. Both are pretty basic and easy recipe. It has rained non-stop in Chennai and surprisingly its cool here..I'm planning to make some namak pares for this weather it would be heavenly....

Lemon Rice

Ingredients :

Rice = 1 cup washed and cooked
Lemon = 1-2 cut in half and take the juice
Groundnut = 1 tbs fried in lil oil
Cashew nut = 1 tbs fried in oil

salt = to taste

To Temper :

Oil = 2 tbs

Mustard seeds = 1 tsp
broken urad dhal = 1/2 tsp
Bengal gram = 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves = 2 springs
Turmeric powder = 1/4 tsp
Hing = 1 big pinch
Green chillies = 2 finely chopped
Ginger = 2 inch in length finely chopped

How To :
  • Cook rice as you would do everyday and keep aside.
  • In a small saucepan, add oil wait for it to get hot.
  • Add all the items given under TEMPER in the order listed.
  • Switch of the stove and the lemon juice (if you add it while still on stove it will become bitter).
  • Add this mixture onto the cooked rice and throw in the nuts.
  • Serve hot with papads or any subzi..it tastes best with fried potatoes.
Please let me know if there is any other variations that you are aware of...
