Today, I made butter chicken and lemon rice. But, this lemon rice is quite different from the traditional one. The traditional one has peanuts, whole red chillies and in some cases even lentils. I wanted to keep it simple. So, this is what I did...
1 cup basmati rice
2 cups chicken stock
zest of one lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- In a pan, combine basmati rice, chicken stock, lemon zest, salt, lemon juice, turmeric powder and cover and cook till the rice is done
- When the rice is cooked, fluff it with a fork and serve it with any gravy of your choice.
