Lemon rice is the quick recipe you’ve been looking for! It takes a boring leftover and turns it into a light, tangy, crunchy and delicious dinner with zilch effort.
Sesame or groundnut oil
Use any vegetable oil if you don't have these
Green chilli, finely chopped
Dry red chillies
Salt to taste
I used Sona Masuri. You can use Basmati too.
Juice of 2 lemons
Soak the chana dal and urad dal in water for 10-15 minutes.
Heat oil in a large pan. Add peanuts and roast till golden brown. Take them out and keep aside.
To the same oil, add the soaked, drained dals along with mustard seeds.
When the dals are golden brown, add the curry leaves, red chillies and green chillies. Cook for a few seconds and add the turmeric powder and salt.
Turn the heat off and mix in the rice and roasted peanuts. Mix well. Add the lemon juice.
Taste and adjust for seasoning and lemon juice according to your preference.
Serve warm immediately with raita, plain yogurt, chutney or any curry of your choice. Enjoy!
