Seasame Lemon Rice/Yellina Chitranna

A simple breakfast or brunch to me needs to be fulfilling tasty & easy to prepare.. One of my most favourite quick rice is the seasame lime rice which is little different than the regular lemon/lime rice with an added flavour of seasame.. I love the the flavour of seasame..

Here is how you make it:

You will need
2 cups of left over/fresh cooked long grain rice.

2tbsp peanut oil/seasame oil if you like

4 green chillies
1/2 green pepper chopped
For tadka/seasoning: mustard seeds 1tsp, peanuts 1tsp, curry leaves a twig, urad dal 1tsp, turmeric 1/2 tsp
seasame seeds-1/4 cup(roast it dry in a pan till it pops and powder this coarsely..

juice of lime/lemon
Spread the cooked rice in a flat pan or a plate so that the granules separate..

In a pan, add oil and add all the seasonings..Add cut green chillies, turmeric and green pepper and mix well. close the lid for 3mins till the pepper is well cooked..

Allow this to cool a little and mix this to the rice. Add salt and mix the seasame powder well. Finally add the juice of lemon and mix well and serve..

Adding seasame powder enhances the flavour of this rice...
