Another mixed rice variety, which can be made in a jiffy.

Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Bengal Gram Dal - 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 sp
Green Chillies - 2 
Red Chillies - 2
Cashew Nuts - 6 to 8 (optional)
Turmeric Powder - 2 pinches
Asafodeita - 1 pinch
Lemon - Big 1 no.
Curry Leaves -  a few 
Salt to taste

Spread the cooked rice in a flat bowl and add 1 tbsp of ghee to it and let it cool. (Dont let it cool too much, it have to be warm enough). In a pan add 1 tbsp of ghee and 1 tbsp of oil and when hot add mustard seeds. When it splutters add Bengal gram dal and cashew nut(cut into small pieces). Add the red and green chillies. Add turmeric powder and asafodeita and when the cashew nuts turn golden remove from flame.

Cut the curry leaves and add it on top of the rice. Pour the oil on top of the rice and mix thoroughly. Add required salt and mix again without breaking the rice. Better mix it with a fork or the back of laddle. Squeeze the lemon all over the rice and mix again so that the lemon's taste gets mixed all over.
