Lemon Rice is an all-time favourite rice preparation in South India, where it is made on a regular basis for lunch or dinner, offered as prasad to devotees at temples, served as part of a wedding spread, and carried frequently in the dabba to work or school.
With a holistic flavour that combines spice and tang, this rice does not need any complex accompaniments – just a papad or some crispy potato wafers would do!
- Combine the ghee and oil in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds.
- Add the urad dal, mustard seeds and asafetida, mix well and microwave on high for 1 minute.
- Add the curry leaves, green chillies and turmeric powder, mix well and microwave on high for 1 minute.
- Add the rice, lemon juice, salt along with 1½ tbsp of water, mix well and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately garnished with coriander.
- Sprinkle a little water at step 4, if the rice becomes dry.
