Carrot Lemon Rice


        Day 4 of Blogging Marathon under the theme " Easy Kids Lunch box recipe - Rice" and today's easy lunch box recipe is Carrot Lemon Rice. For a change i added shredded carrots to the usual lemon rice. My kids don't like carrots so i always have to do some experiment with carrots. One such experiment was this Carrot Lemon rice. They love to eat lemon rice with more peanuts n cashew nuts so i added more carrots to it and feed simple lemon rice with loaded nutrition. You too try to feed carrots in this way n I bet they won't complaint n finish it off .Now to the recipe...



Ingredients
  1. Cooked Rice   2 cups
  2. Lemon juice   1/2 cup (juice of 2 large lemons)
  3. Carrot   2 medium (shredded)
  4. Cilantro   1 handful
  5. Ginger   2 tbsp(finely chopped)
  6. Curry leaves   1 sprig
  7. Green chilli    3 no.s (finely chopped)
  8. Salt    to taste
To Temper
  1. Oil   1 tbsp
  2. Sesame oil   1 tbsp
  3. Mustard seeds   1/2 tsp
  4. Chana dal   1 tbsp
  5. Urad dal   1 tbsp
  6. Peanut   2 tbsp
  7. Cashew nut   2 tbsp

Method
  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and allow to pop.
  • Then add channa dal,urad dal and ground nuts,cashew nuts and fry till golden brown.
  • Add curry leaves,ginger,green chillies and fry for a minute and add turmeric powder.
  • Then pour the lemon juice and enough salt and mix well.
  • Bring this mixture to boil and when it starts boiling add shredded carrots n cilantro.
  • Mix well and turn off the stove.
  • Allow this mixture to cool for a while and then mix it with cooked rice. Mix gently, check salt n adjust it.
  • That's it...Tangy n Yummy Carrot Lemon Rice is ready to serve.I served along with Potato Podimas.

  15. i love lemon rice and always prefer others (especially friends from south india to make it for me as I never get the texture i like). Now yours looks so pretty and inviting and excellent idea of adding carrot to it , makes it colorful

  16. Looks colorful ! Instead of boiling Lemon extract to the garnish item. Boil the Lemon extract with Turmeric powder separately which will keep the crunchiness of Cashew, G.Nut & added Dhalls.
