Start by rinsing the rice and soaking it in water for 15 minutes.
Once the rice is properly soaked, boil it in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles. If you are using an open vessel, then boil the rice for 15 minutes. Make sure to not overcook the rice and remove any excess water if left.
Once the rice is cooked, let it cool down to room temperature.
Next, heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, curry leaves, dry redchilies, and hing. Saute.
Next add the peanuts and saute.
Once the peanuts are about 80% done, add the minced garlic. Saute forabout a minute.
Add the turmeric powder, chili powder, and salt next. Saute.
Add the lemon juice and saute for a few seconds.
Lastly, add the boiled rice and mix properly. Lower the flame and saute for 1-2 minutes.
Serve hot with Indian pickle.
