Lemon Rice

Hi all ...
Lemon rice is the specialty of South ...as I am staying in Bangalore, we often make this at home. You can make this with leftover rice too. Ideal for kids lunch box and evening snacks also.


 Ingredients:
2 cups boiled rice
3 tbsp oil
2 tbsp peanuts
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
Few curry leaves
1 medium size onion (chopped)
2-3 green chilies (optional)
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp coriander powder
Salt acc.to taste
1 lemon
Fresh chopped coriander for garnishing


Method:
Heat oil in a kadhai. Add peanuts, fry till brown. Remove from oil.
In the same oil add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. When they splutter add curry leaves and green chilies. Saute for 1-2 mins.
Now add onion and saute till golden brown.
Add all the dry masalas and cook for 2-3 mins.
Remove from fire and add lemon juice into it . Mix well.
Bring it back on fire.
Add boiled rice and mix well.
Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot.
Enjoy with a cup of tea or a coffee.
