Tips for preparing more delicious meals with lemon rice paste
Rinse your basmati (or other long-grain rice) underwater until the water comes out clean. Additionally, soak your rice in fresh water for 20 to 30 minutes, then drain the rice and set it aside. Rinsing the rice removes surface starches that can cause the rice to become gummy while cooking. Soaking gives the rice the opportunity to cook more evenly and will ensure you don’t get any al dente pieces. In the cooking phase, you can prepare your rice the way you want. Mix 2 teaspoons (20g approx) of this paste with 1 cup (150g approx) of cooked rice in a clean dry bowl thoroughly and set aside for 2 minutes. For extra taste garnish with fresh coriander leaves and groundnuts or cashew nuts freshly roasted in Gingelly oil and serve. Enjoy your yummy home-style lemon rice!
How can you serve lemon rice for delicious combinations?
Best served with side dishes like fresh thick coconut chutney, plain yoghurt, pickle, salad, kosambari and sambar. During festivals and occasions, Indian people serve lemon rice with masala vada, papad or pakara. In addition, adding some caramelized onions would take the lemon rice side dish to the next level.
