Lemon Rice

Perhaps it is one of the most easiest recipe.
Whenever i make lemon rice i get reminded of my picnic days in my childhood.
back in India, we always used to take this or Puliyodarai with any thuvaiyal prepared by my grand mom.


Rice - 1 cup
Lemon- 2 (deseeded n juiced)
Mustard Seeds- 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Channa dal- 1/4 tsp
Red chillies - 1 or 2
Curry leaves - a bunch
Asafoetida- 2 pinch
Groundnuts- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1 tspn
Oil- 1/2 tbsp


  • Cook the rice n keep it aside.
  • In a pan add oil and when it is hot drop mustard seeds,urad dal n channa dal
  • allow it to splutter and then add the curry leaves , red chillies n asafoetida
  • then add the groundnuts and saute for a min.(i have avoided using groundnuts but it is gives more taste)
  • when their flavours has got a chance to intermingle add the lemon juice and turmeric powder, wait for 2 mins and then take it off the flame
  • add the needed salt and mix it with the rice.
  • simple isnt it?
  • enjoy with potato chips or any thuvaiyal
