This has been there for a long time in my photo slide and as draft.Since this is a recipe which everyone know I was in a dilemma where to publish or discard.. but now i realised it is different from what others normally do.Only difference is the malsala powder that i use.Normally i haven't seen anyone using masala powder for lemon rice.

I started using it because my sweet hubby thinks its just lemon rice and nothing special about it and brought back the lunch.So just to give some extra flavour I started using it as the feedback was good :)

Rice cooked
Lemon juice
Oil- seasoning
>Urad Dal-seasoning
Channa Dal-seasoning
Turmeric powder- pinch
Salt-to taste
Green chilli or red chilli- to taste
Curry leaf-seasoning
Bengal gram-2 tbs
Red chilli-8(according to taste)
-1 1/2 tbs
Cumin -1 tbs
Cinnamon- 1

1)Dry fry all the masala ingredients and powder them.

2) Heat oil in a pan and season with all the seasonings along with asefotida.

3)Squeeze the lemon and extract the juice.(i prefer fresh juice )

4)Add salt and turmeric powder.

5)Add the hot seasoning in the juice.

6)Mix this with cooked rice along with 1 or 2 spoon of the masala powder.
