Wash all vegetables under tap and chop them in small chunks.
You may soak Chana dal when you begin with the Tadka for around 15 min.
I have used leftover rice. In case you wish to have fresh boiled rice, it would take additional 15 min. Soak rice for 20 min. Boil them for 10 min till tender and drain excess water from the pan.
Take a heavy bottomed Kadai/Pan and heat desi ghee in it. Add 1/4 tsp Heeng. Add Mustard Seeds.
Remove water from soaked Chana Dal and add it to kadai. Cook for less than a min.
Add curry leaves.
Add onions. Cook for 2 min till they are transparent.
Add chopped tomatoes.
Add salt as per taste.
Add grated Raw Mango. Cook for 1min.
Add lemon juice around 1 tablespoon. Can add more if you want more tangy.
Add boiled rice and mix well.
The Lemon rice is ready!! Enjoy with curd or green chutney!!
