      This was delicious. However, do note that oil needs to be over low heat when you put the mustard seeds in. Mine was too hot, obviously, as the seeds started to pop and jump out of the pan immediately. I used some red pepper flakes rather than a whole dried chili, sauteed the rice with the rest of the ingredients and then threw everything into the rice cooker, which made for a no-stress completion of the disk. I have just a little cooker, but the larger, more powerful cookers will handle the heating of the oil and the spices right in the cooker bowl. A terrific accompaniment to our chicken this evening.

      This went quite well with our Indian chicken for supper. I love lemon rice and this recipe did not fail me it. It had a nice lemon flavor, not to tart but enough that you could taste the flavor. Plus it looked lovely. Made for ZWT8.
