Lemon RIce

This is another one of my favourite mixed rice. This rice can be prepared in 5 minutes of course wih cooked rice available. Lemon rice with vadams or with some nice fried vegetable like fried potatoes or fried chenaikizhangu or fried chepankizhangu will taste yummy.........

In Karnataka lemon rice is served with coconut chutney ground with roasted gram dal. This was a surprise for me. But when I tasted this combination it was great.

Rice - 150 grams
Lemon - 2 medium sized
Oil - 25 grams
mustard - 3 grams
urad dal - 3 grams
channa dal - 3 grams
groundnuts - 15 grams
green chillies - 5 grams
ginger - 5 grams
turmeric powder - 2 grams
coriander leaves - few
salt - to taste


  • Cook rice with water ratio 1 :2 with salt for 1 whistle. After done, transfer to a broad bowl and add a tsp of oil and mix carefully once and keep aside.
  • Squeeze lemon and collect the juice. Heat a kadai/ pan with oil, add mustard, once spluttered, add urad dal, channa dal, peanuts. Fry till golden.
  • Then add green chillies, ginger and turmeric. Give a quick stir.
  • Switch off the stove.
  • Pour this over the cooked rice and pour the lemon juice.
  • Mix well and if needed add more oil.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves..
