Let’s Get Started

You Will Need

  • 1kg Cooked Rice mixed with 1/2 cup tamarind pulp
  • 20 Small red onions
  • Curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp Garlic finely chopped
  • 2 Dried red chillies
  • 2 tbsp Maldive fish flakes
  • Lime juice of 3 limes
  • 1 tbsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp Chillie Flakes
  • Salt

Step One : Mix the cooked rice with tamarind and salt and set aside before you start the tempering so it soaks up all that tanginess

Step Two : In another pan, sauté the garlic till it’s nice and golden.Then add in sliced onions and curry leaves and let it fry…

Step Three : Add in dried chillies and soaked channa dhal

Step Four : Add mustard seeds, Maldive fish chips, turmeric and chilli flakes.

Finally add in lime juice and combine

Make sure this does not burn while frying

This has to be on medium high flame

Step Five : Now mix this in with the rice that was soaking with tamarind and salt.You could also add in left over gravy for a nicer flavour…

This Lemon Rice is ready to be enjoyed even plain because it is that good!!!
