Lemon Rice

Cooked Rice-2cups
Large lemon-1
Green Chilly-2
Red Chilly-3
Curry leaves-few
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Turmeric powder-1/4teaspoon
Channa dhal & Urad dhal -11/2 teaspoons each

Squeeze the lemon juice and keep it aside.
Chop the onions & green chillies.
Heat oil in a wide pan, make the tempering with mustard seeds. Allow them to pop up, add channa and urad dhal, fry till they turn golden colour.
Now add the onions-g.chilly-curry leaves-red chilly-turmeric powder with sugar and enough salt.
Fry till the onions becomes transparent. Reduce the flame to very low, add the lemon juice, give it a quick stir and add the rice.
Mix the rice well and after a few minutes put off the flame.

Tangy lemon rice is ready to serve. Adding little sugar enhances the taste,so don't skip it. Make this in advance, as the rice absorbs the lemon juice nicely and tastes great after (at least)2-3 hours. Its a perfect packed food for lunch boxes and trips. Potato fry or some chips will be a perfect sides for this quick rice delicacy.
