Rice : 1 cup (usually good for two suppers and a lunch, depending on how hungry one is)
Lemon: Juice of one (medium size)
Black mustard seeds: 1 tablespoon
Channa dal (a kind of dried lentil): ½ tablespoon
Urad dal: 1 teaspoon
Turmeric: 1 teaspoon
Dried red chilies: two (I use more and you can, too, to make it more incendiary)
Fenugreek powder: ½ teaspoon
Salt: To taste
Now your rice is ready to be cooked. I dont know if you have a rice cooker. If you do, transfer pots contents to rice cooker, throw in water (with juice of lemon mixed in) as directed by rice cooker manufacturer, add turmeric & salt, mix well, and let the cooker do its trick.
If you dont have a rice cooker, use the same sauté pot with all its contents. Add about 2½ cups of water, salt & turmeric, and cook the rice down. Or, go ahead and add as much water as you would (mix in lemon juice, of course) and cook the rice down with salt & turmeric added to pots contents.
