Lemon Semiya

    I am a big lover of all tangy dishes. But somehow Lemon Rice was the first thing in my "Not likey" list. Still i couldn't find out the reason. In recent days, to my surprise, me became a super fan of lemon rice, me started to buy 3 to 4 lemons weekly that too will use it for preparing lemon rice. Now i didn't know, how this lemon rice fever affected. Sounds silly is it ?!?! Even me in the same boat. Fine, coming to this recipe, i got some leftover lemon juice mixed up with turmeric powder. Don't know how to empty that. As usual surfed some blogs and finally end up with this recipe.


ALL YOU NEED:
Roasted Semiya 1 cup
Lemon juice 1/2 cup
Turmeric Powder Pinch
Ginger 1/2 inch
Green chilly 1 no.
Urad dhall 1 spoon
Channa dhall 1 spoon
Red chilly 1 no.
Curry leaf 1 twig
Mustard 1 sp
Peanut 1 spoon
Hing 1 sp
Salt To taste
Oil 4 spoons

METHOD:
    Take a heavy bottomed pan, heat 3 cups of water, pinch of salt a spoon of oil. Once done, add a cup of roasted semiya. Allow it to cook. Make sure, it should not be messy. Strain it once its cooked. Once all the water got strained, spread the semiya in a wide plate.
    Meantime, heat a pan with 2 spoons of oil, add mustard, urad dhall, channa dhall and hing. Give a saute. Now add slited red, green chilly, ginger and curry leaf. Add peanut and give a mix and transfer it to a bowl. Now in the same pan, pour the lemon juice, pinch of turmeric powder, let the flame be in medium. Once it starts boiling, put off the flame.
     Now check whether the semiya is partially cooled, once its done, pour the tempered items, mix gently without breaking the shape of the semiya. Now pour the boiled lemon juice, give gentle stir again, do this until the semiya got mixed up with the lemon juice. Now serve with spicy sidedish like Mushroom masala or Potato fry.
