Lemon Rice/Nimmakaya Pulihora

Tuesday, May 25, 2010
This is one food i used to hate.. but eventually started loving it. This is also very easy to  make. Actually this reminds me of the prasadams we used to get in the Temples back in India ;)

You will need :

Rice - 2 cups (soaked and cooked and let it cool down)Tip: add some oil while cooking.. this helps in the grains not sticking to eachother :)
Lemons - 1-2 medium sized squeezed (or more if you like it more sour)
Green Chillies - 6-7 slit
Dried Red Chillies - 4-5
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Cumin seeds - 1tsp
Channa dal - 1tbsp
Curry Leaves
Turmeric Powder - about 1tsp

You will need to do :

1. To the cooked rice, add salt and lemon juice and keep aside.
2. In a small kadai or pan heat some oil and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, channa dal, dry red chillies, green chillies, curry leaves, groundnuts, hing and turmeric powder and fry well. (Make sure you don't burn them).
3. Add this seasoning to the rice and mix well.

Enjoy it with pappad and you will really love it :)
