Lemon rice with vegetables, blueberries
Lemon rice (tadka rice/ phodnicha bhat) with vegetables : Leftovers can be made into great lunches. I used leftover plain rice, vegetables, nuts and lentils to make lemon rice.
vegetables : I used edamame, carrots cubes, blanched broccoli(mixed on top) - peas/sprouted cooked beans, corn, squash, methi, spinach(greens) etc can be added.
nuts : cashews, walnuts, peanuts.
lentils : moong and urad dal - chana dal can be good addition.
In a pan, with little oil add - cumin seeds, turmeric(optional), grated ginger, chopped onion, Soaked (few minutes) moong and urad dal, carrot cubes, edamame. Add pinch of salt and some water, let it cook and water evaporate. Add nuts, precooked rice, lemon juice, salt and 1 tsp sugar. cover it and cook for 5 min. I mixed blanched broccoli at the end.
with some Blueberries.
