Lemon Rice

Lemon rice is one of my favourite rice dish...everyone will agree with me that this delicious yellow rice tastes delicious and bit tangy, prefect to take with us for long journey as they stay for a long...my mom add a few teaspoon of spice powder prepared with fenugreek and asafoetida powder which mixing the rice..also she used to fry few peanuts n cashewnuts to make the lemon rice a bit rich, from my side i used to add butter while preparing the tempering which gives a delicious taste to the rice,u can also avoid adding butter while tempering but personally i wish to add butter for a yummy flavour...This delicious yellow rice goes to Flavoured Rice-Indian by Smitha of Kadumanga..She was asking all the blogger friends to send Indian Flavoured rice before 15th april...


1/2cup Fresh lemon juice
2cups Cooked rice
Salt

For tempering:
1/4tp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad dal
1/4tsp Channa dal
1tsp Ginger pieces (minced finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
3nos Dry red chillies
30nos Peanuts
6nos Curry leaves
3tbsp Oil+1tbsp butter
1/2tsp Turmeric powder

For Spice Powder
1tbsp Fenugreek seeds
1/2tsp Asafoetida powder

Mix the already cooked rice with lemon juice and salt, (add lemon juice as ur need)..now heat the oil and butter (i used to add butter to make the rice more tasty, u can omit it also) and add all the ingredients from the list for tempering except turmeric powder to the hot oil and fry until everything turns brown, add finally the turmeric powder, take care not to burn the turmeric powder...add this tempered spices to the rice, now dry roast the ingredients for spice powder in a pan ,grind into fine powder...mix the rice with tempered ingredients and with a teaspoon of spice powder...mix everything well with a spatula...

Tasty Lemon Rice is Ready!!
