Lemon Rice

28 Dec

1. Cook as much rice as you normally eat in a pressure cooker and leave it outside to cool. Make sure that rice isn’t too wet; get the rice-water proportion perfectly right.

2. Take some mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, chopped green chillies and some groundnuts and fry them all in a little oil. It doesn’t need to be deep fried at all; just a teaspoon or two of oil should do.

3. Once its all fried add a little salt and some turmeric powder. Stir around till the oil turns light yellow.

4. Make sure that the rice has cooled down sufficiently. If yes, add the oil along with all its ingredients to the rice and mix well. Once the rice has completely turned yellow, you should have a nice contrast of the yellow rice, green chillies and curry leaves, the black mustard and the reddish brown ground nuts.

5. Squeeze a little lemon juice into the rice. Mix well. Taste if sour enough; continue adding lemon juice if not so. If lemons are not available easily, dissolve a little citric acid in water and use the same. It’s equally efficient.

6. Server with a few papads, chips or coconut chutney.

That’s it..it’s a super easy recipe and hardly takes much time đŸ™‚
