This is slightly different from regular lemon rice. This colorful lemon rice with sweetcorn looks very nice and attractive (not as in the below pick! I couldn't take a good pick this time :( ) Especially, children will love it a lot :) I tasted this kind of lemon rice for the first time at my sister-in law's place and liked it a lot. I learned it from her and it has become a common lunch box item at my home these days.


Preparation time: 40 - 45 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients:
Rice (uncooked) - 1 1/2 cup
Sweet corn (fresh or frozen) - 3/4 cup
1 Lime
Salt
Sugar - 1/4 spoon
For seasoning: Oil - 3 spoon, Urad dal - 1 spoon, Mustard seeds - 1/2 spoon, pinch of asafoetida, turmeric - 1/4 spoon, chopped green chillies - 3, few curry leaves

Method:
Wash the rice thoroughly and cook them. Don't make it too smooth and sticky.
Spread the cooked rice on a wide plate and allow to cool. 
Heat oil in a frying pan, add urad dal, mustard seeds and asafoetida. Once the mustard seeds start spluttering, add turmeric, green chillies and curry leaves.
Add sweet corn and cook it for 2 - 3 minutes.
To this, add rice and mix it little-bit. Add salt, sugar and lime squeeze and mix it well.
Check and adjust the taste. Lemon rice with sweet corn is ready to serve.
