Brown Rice Lemon Rice

Brown rice is a great alternative to the white rice for diabetics. However it is not restricted to just that. Being fibrous it aids the digestive system, reduces cholesterol risk, maintains blood pressure and and has significant benefits for the heart.

The 8 years I spent at Bangalore got me hooked to Lemon rice, Sigh. The pillowy goodness with the crunch of urad dal and peanuts and perfect tang of lemon makes me want to rush back to Namma Ooru. I do not fry the peanuts off instead add roasted ones.

I swapped the white rice for brown one in one of my trials in the kitchen and it has been happily accepted by the husband too. Here is how I make it.
