Nutty Lemon Rice

For Day 2 Week 3 of BM #46, here is another Lemon/Lime based recipe which is a favorite of our little one. This version of Lemon rice is specifically for her lunch box with no chillies for her.

I just realized that I have not posted the traditional Lemon Rice in this space. I can't imagine not having posted it. 

Ingredients - 

Cooked Rice 1 cup
Almonds, Cashews and Peanuts 1 tablespoon each
Sesame Seeds 1/2 tsp
Coconut Powder 1/2 tsp
Turmeric 1/8 tsp
Salt, Green Chillies as needed
Lemon Juice as needed
Coriander leaves for garnish
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp, Red Chillies 1, Asafoetida a pinch)

Nutty Lemon Rice

Method Of Preparation -

In a pan, heat oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the mustard seeds crackle and the dals brown, reduce heat.

Coarsely crush the nuts, sesame seeds and coconut powder and saute in the pan. If using green chillies, saute them as well. Sprinkle turmeric and salt.

Mix in the cooked rice and remove from heat.

Sprinkle lemon juice and mix well.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Preparation Time 7 min
Serves 1
