evenly cooked and separate .

brown remove from fire and add juice of one lemon. now mix this with
2 cups of cooked rice and salt and mix well .. leave for five minutes

only green chillies as required. u can also add a tbsp of grated carrot
or ginger juliens too for a different taste.

red chillies, mustard and cumin seeds and when they splutter add
curry leaves , tsp of urad dal and chana dal and fry a little . now add
