Lemon Rice!!! as the name suggests this rice is bursting with lemon flavor. This is a very popular south Indian cuisine, it is a perfect blend of steamed rice, lemon juice and seasoned with lentils and nuts and garnished with coriander leaves. The turmeric powder gives this beautiful golden color to the dish. Its very easy to make. So lets dive in…..

Ingredients needed:
1 C Basmati rice
(Wash the rice, add 1-1/2 cups of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles and let it cool completely)
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Channa dal
1/2 tsp Udad dal
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
few Cashews
1 Lime
For seasoning:
2 tbsp Oil
2 tbsp dry roasted and chopped peanuts
1tsp salt
1/4 C chopped coriander leaves

Heat a pan, add 2 tbsp of oil, when the oil is heated add mustard, udad dal, channa dal, cashew nuts, sautee for few seconds, add turmeric powder and curry leaves. Sautee until the dal is golden brown, now add the cooked rice, salt and the peanuts. Squeeze in the lime juice, add coriander leaves and mix everything thoroughly.
You can enjoy the lemon rice with coconut chutney or just by itself.

  1. Thank you once again for this lovely recipe =)
    Just one question, are the cashew nuts and peanuts soaked? As Sadhguru mentioned that nuts should always be soaked before consuming, but I'm not sure if it applies only to when we eat nuts raw are if it also means that we should soak nuts that we cook with?
