Lemon Rice


  • 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.
