- 225g of basmati rice
- 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons of mustard seeds
- Rind and juice of 2 lemons
- 1 handful of curry leaves
- Salt and pepper
Put the rice in boiling water and cook for 10-12 minutes.
Heat the oil in a small frying pan, over a medium heat. Add mustard seeds and as they begin to pop, add the curry leaves and strips of lemon rind (remove with a peeler). Leave to cook for a minute until the lemon peel is lightly coloured.
Drain the rice and place it in a bowl, and then pour over the cooked spices and lemon juice.
Season to taste and serve with a good curry.
