Lemon Rice


Rice  - 1 cup
Lemon - 2 medium sized
Potato - 1 medium sized
Green Chillies - 8
Red Chillies - 2
Bengal Gram Dal - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Ground nuts - 50g
Curry Leaves - few
Salt - As required


Cook rice and allow it to cool in a broad basin.  Heat oil in kadai and add turmeric powder and switch off immediately and pour on top of rice and mix well.  Again heat oil in kadai and add mustard seeds.  Once they start spluttering, add bengal gram dal, red chillies and cut green chillies and fry till the dal turns light brown.  To this add potatoes and fry again.  When potato turns light brownish, add ground nuts and fry for a minute.  Now add lemon juice and salt and switch off immediately.  Add to the rice and mix well.

** to make rice spicy grind a few green chillies to fine paste and fry along with the seasonings.
**Green peas can also be added along with the potatoes.
