Finely chop ginger, coriander leaves and vertically slit the green chilies.
Squeeze lemon juice and keep aside.
Wash rice thoroughly and soak for 10-15 mins. Cook the rice but do not make it mushy. I prefer to cook in rice cooker. Cool it completely
Sprinkle lemon juice over the cooked rice, mix well and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard, cumin seeds when splutters, add urad dal and chana dal.
When the dal turns golden , add ginger, curry leaves and green chilies.
Add hing, turmeric and salt.
Finally add coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
Add this mixture to the cooked rice and mix well. Garnish with fried cashew.
Lemon rice is ready to serve. Enjoy the lemon rice as it is or you can also have it with gutti vankaya curry.
