Lemon Rice

Lemon rice is one of the variety rices,which we prepare for many festive occasions.Its easy and simple.My son loves it a lot and he names it as yellow rice.Today i had no veges at home, yet to buy it .
Had lemon, so prepared with potato roast.It went well for our lunch.I am giving u a bit different version of preparing, which my friend sheena used to do.I love her preparation.Give it a try ,ull love it too.



Ingredients:
For setting the rice:
1.Cooked rice                  -        1 1/2 cup
2.Lemon juice                  -         1/2 cup
3.Turmeric pwdr             -          1/4 tsp
4.Salt                               -          to taste

For Tempering:
1.Oil                               -         1 tbsp
2.Mustard seeds             -          1 tsp
2.Urad dal                      -          1 tsp
3.Chana dal                    -          1 tsp
4.Red chillies                -            4
5.Curry leaves               -           1 spring
6.hing                            -             a pinch
7.Cilantro                      -            for garnishing
Method:
* Cook rice with a tsp of  oil and spread it on a tray for drying.
* This oil helps te rice to stay non-sticky.
* When the rice is cold, add lemon juice,salt,and turmeric pwdr.
* Let it sit for 10 mins,so that the rice absorbs the lemon flavour well.
* This is will help us to add the juice according to our taste.
* Now take a wide pan add all the ingredients under ' for tempering' except cilantro.
* When the tadka is over, dump in the lemon rice to the pan and mix well.
* When the rice looses ,the raw smell,turn off the heat and garnish with cilantro.
* Serve hot with crispy potato fry.

Note:
We can also add fried peanuts for the rice.
