Lemon Rice

This is one of the easy, tasty and wholesome food which can be prepared in fifteen minutes. It is customary in our traditions to make this during festivals,though we do not add onions then.

The ingredients that you need are:

I bowl of cooked rice

2 onions finely cut

2 tbsp of groundnuts

3 green chillies cut into pieces

a few curry leaves

1 tbsp of gram dal

1 tbsp of urad dal

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1/4 tsp asafoetida

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

salt to taste

1 lemon

2 tbsp oil

Procedure:

At first, prepare the rice and allow to cool.

Take a kadai and make the seasoning with all the ingredients. Allow the  groundnuts  for a few seconds and then add the onions. Saute them  until pale in colour. Now, remove from fire and keep aside. Add the cooked rice and salt. Mix well. Add the lemon juice. Garnish with finely cut coriander leaves.
