Lemon Rice

What you need: 

3/4 cup uncooked rice
2 teaspoon urad dal
2 teaspoon channa dal
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon tumeric powder
1 dried red chili
salt and lemon juice to taste

What you do: 

Put 3/4 of a cup of rice to boil. In another pot heat up about 1 tbsp of oil. When the oil is hot add the red chili (broken into pieces) 2 tsp each of urad dal and channa dal (I don't know their English names, but you could get them off the net I guess...) Let the grains roast till they are light brown/red. Do NOT let them burn. Add 1 tsp of mustard seeds. When the seeds begin to crackle add the tumeric. Take the pot off the heat. Once the rice is cooked, add it to the mixture you have just created. Also add the lemon juice (I think about 4 tbsp would be ideal, though you could add or subtract at will) and the salt. mix it all up till the rice is yellow over. this is great plain, and you could pack it for lunch. its also LOW FAT!!

So delicious! I added torn up curry leaves near the end, because it's one of my favorite spices. Other than that, this recipe was absolutely perfect the way that it was!
