Lemon rice( chitraanna/ lemon sadam)

One of the most famous south Indian recipe. I just love this. Its a great leftover recipe. Very simple yet tasty dish. Papads, pickles and chutneys can be a great combinations to add on. Here goes the recipe

Cooked rice - 4 cups
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
urad dal - 1/2 tsp
channa dal - 1 tsp
red chillies - 4 nos
curry leaves - 1 stalk
green chillies - 3 nos
onions- 1 nos
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
oil - 4 tbsp
salt for taste
juice of 3 lemon

In a wok heat oil, add mustard seeds, urad dal and channa dal fry for a min. Now add red chillies, curry leaves and finely sliced onions. Add turmeric powder, green chillies, salt( must be excess as the rice is also added to the same mixture) and lemon juice. Finally add cooked rice and give a good toss till all the rice grains are well coated. Serve hot with papad, pickles, chutneys etc.

Can add peanuts also, this would give a different flavour. In this recipe even leftover rice can be used instead of freshly cooked rice. This also tastes equally good.
