I always loved any dish made out of rice....puliyogere,mango rice,bisibele baath, chitranna and the list goes on.............
Bottom line, I can eat rice for any meal.
Typically we make this dish when we have leftover white rice and when served would tease Mom by asking whether someone missed their dinner last night.I especially love the one with mango peices and would request to add extra mangoes for me.
Since no one in my family here eats this, I make it when I have some leftover White rice or when I don't feel like making a curry to go with it. ........and of course to relish my childhood taste.

cooked Rice 2cups,
Lime juice 2tsp
Mustard seeds 1tsp
cumin seeds 1tsp
Urad dal 1tsp
Channa dal 1tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Red chillies 3-4
A small piece of ginger, finely chopped
Turmeric powder 1/4tsp
Peanuts 8-10
oil 1tsp
Salt as required
Coconut grated

Heat oil and add dals,mustard seeds,curry leaves,cumin seeds,red chillies,peanuts and ginger.

When the dals turn brown,add the turmeric and ginger.Fry for another minute till the mustard crackles.

Now add the lime juice and reduce heat.Heat through and remove.Mix this with rice as required and add salt to taste.

Garnish with cilantro.
