This rice comes to my rescue most times I'm out of ideas or am in no mood to cook anything elaborate and still don't feel guilty of not making the right food at home. An all in one, delicious and filling lemon rice with the addition of carrots and green-peppers to make it a good eat for kids and adults all the same. Being a one dish meal, and colorful too, its easy to get my kid to eat it. The carrots and capsicum still remain slightly crunchy as they are not fully cooked, and it tastes good. Ingredients Raw Rice - 1 cup Capsicum, sliced very fine - 3/4 cup Carrot, finely grated - 1 1/2 cup Grated ginger - 1 tsp Mustard seeds - 1 tsp Udad dal - 1 tsp Chana Dal - 2 tsp Green chillies, slit lengthwise - 3 nos. Curry leaves - 4-5 Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp Juice of 1 lemon Salt - to taste Oil Method - Cook the rice and keep it aside to cool. - Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds and once they crackle, add the udad dal, chana dal, green chillies, ginger and curry leaves. Once the dals are browned, add the turmeric powder and salt and switch off the flame. Add the carrots and capsicum and mix well and cover and keep for about 10 minutes. The heat from the pan is enough to soften the veggies. No need to cook them. - Then add the rice and the lemon juice to the pan and mix everything evenly with care to not break the rice. - Serve as it is or with a side of your choice.
