LEMON RICE



This is the most popular dish made in South Indian homes. You can make use of your left over rice too. Because of the tanginess from the lemon juice this does not spoil easily and hence it is always a preferred dish to carry during journeys and picnics.

Ingredients:
Cooked rice .......... 2 cups ( Can also use the left over rice)
Ginger .................. 1 tbsp. (grated)
Green chillies ....... 1-2 slit
Lime juice ............. 2-3 tbsp.
Turmeric powder ... 1/4 tsp.
Salt .......................... to taste
Oil

Tempering:
Mustard seeds ......... 1 tbsp.
Cumin seeds ............ 1 tsp.
Dry red chillies ......... 1-2
Asofoetida .................. a pinch
Curry leaves ............. 8-10
Chana dal .................. 1 tbsp. (soaked for 1-2 hrs)
Peanuts ..................... 1 tbsp.

Method:

1. Heat a little oil in a pan and add the tempering ingredients.
2. Fry till the seeds crackle and then add ginger and green chillies.
3. Mix the lime juice into the rice and add turmeric powder. Check the salt.

4. Now add the rice to the tempering and stir well.
5. Finally add the coriander leaves.
