Lemon rice

Lemon rice is one of the most popular and often made rice in South India. It is easily made when you are in a hurry. This is one of the best tiffin box recipes and liked by everyone starting from kids to the older ones. It can be had with papad or chips. I like to have it with lemon pickle.


    Rice – 1 cup

   Lemon – 1

       Coriander – few

 For Seasoning

Mustard- 1 tsp

  Channa dhal-1 tsp

   Urad dhal-1 tsp

     Peanuts- 2 tbsp

     Curry leaves- few

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Salt –  to taste

 Oil – 1 tbsp


  • Pressure cook the rice and keep aside.
  • Extract juice from the lemon and remove the seeds.
  • In a kadai, add oil and splutter mustard seeds. Once they crack, add channa dhal, urad dhal, curry leaves and peanuts. Saute until they turn brown.
  • Then add the turmeric powder, salt and mix well.
  • Finally add the cooked rice and mix well. Donot mix too much with the spatula. The rice will become mushy.
  • Turn off the stove and add lemon juice. Add a tsp extra of lemon juice if you like sour taste.
  • Garnish with coriander and serve.
