2 Cups of steamed Rice (you may use left over rice)
3 Dry Red Chillies
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds (Rai)
1/3 tsp Fenugreek seeds (Methi dana)
1/2 tsp Black split gram (Kala Urad)

Curry Leaves 6-8
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
2 tbsp grated coconut
1 Lemon
2 tbsp Oil
1/2 tsp Salt
Chopped Coriander Leaves for garnishing.

Grate the zest of a lemon, cut it and squeeze all of the juice discarding the seeds and keep aside.

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok. Add dry red chillies, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, black split gram, bengal gram and asafoetida in it. Staute for 1 minute.

Lower the heat, add grated coconut, zest of lemon, turmeric powder and curry leaves. Stir for about another minute. Then add lemon juice, salt and the steamed rice. Mix all well. Keep it on low heat for another 3-4 minutes.

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
