Lemon Rice



Today I am sharing the recipe of lemon rice / Lime rice. I remember having it when I was working in Bangalore.Even my mom used to make this at home. Its an easy and delicious dish and I mostly have it with just pickle or raita.

Ingredients

Rice ~ 1 cup ( You can either use basmati rice or any other white rice )
Lemon juice ~ 2 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder ~ 1/2 tsp 
Urad Dal ( Uzhunnu parippu ) ~  2 1/2 tbsp
Asafoetida powder ( Kayam Podi ) ~ 2 pinch
Green chillies ~ 3-4 Nos
Mustard seeds ( Kaduku )
Cumin seeds ( Jeerakam ) ~ 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves ~ 1 stem
Dry red chillies ~ 4-5 nos
Oil ~ 2 tbsp
Salt


Method

  • First wash and cook rice by adding enough water and drain it nicely.
  • Then heat oil, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When it crackle, lower the flame and add dry red chillies and curry leaves. Then add urad dal and  chopped green chillies and fry till urad dal becomes golden brown in color. Then add turmeric powder and asafoetida powder followed by lemon juice. 
  • Then finally add cooked rice and enough salt and mix it slowly. After 2 minutes remove from the flame. 
Enjoy with pickle, pappad and raita. 

Variations : If you want then you can even fry cashew nuts and add that to the rice. 

Cheers!!
