Lemon Rice

1 cup of cooked rice
Juice of 2 lemons
1 finely chopped green chilli
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
2 dry red chillies
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp channa dal
1 tsp of oil
A pinch of salt to taste
A pinch of turmeric
A pinch of hing (asafoetida)
1tsp chopped coriander & curry leaves
Roasted cashews or peanuts

For seasoning, heat a tsp of oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Once the seeds splutter, add the red chillies, urad & channa dal, chopped ginger, chillies, curry leaves. Finally add turmeric & hing. In a bowl, add salt and the lemon juice, then the seasoning. Add cooked rice and mix well. Garnish with coriander & roasted nuts and serve. This recipe serves 2 people.

Tips: Nothing can go wrong with this. Always cool the rice before you mix. Make sure the rice is not overcooked and does not stick. Add juice of 2 small lemons first. Remember you can always add if any ingredient is less but never take it out :) .

Experiment: Wanna be creative
? Add finely chopped carrots. It takes your lemon rice to the next level ;)
