Last week I prepared this aromatic rice at home and everyone loved, its almost like the lemon rice but has the mustard seeds instead of peanuts and lemon. It has a lovely taste and is also very easy and fast to make.
4 cups rice
3 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp salt
Wash the rice and drain for some minutes.
Heat the ghee in a saucepan and add the mustard seeds, cover with a lid until the seeds pop, them add the rice.
Add the turmeric powder and fry the rice for about 10 minutes, stirring always.
Add the salt.
Put water that cover the rice for about 2 fingers.
Cook for about 30 minutes, add more water, one cup and cook for more 10 minutes.
Decorate with basil leaves and serve with dhal and savories.
