Cook rice with water and turmeric in a heavy saucepan over high heat until
boiling. Reduce heat, cover tightly and cook for 12 minutes. Moisten the
dessicated coconut with milk or coconut milk and set aside. Cook nuts,
curry leaves, mustard seeds and chillies in the ghee until the mustard
seeds begin to pop. Stir into the rice with the coconut, adding the juice

rice has absorbed the liquid and is dry and fluffy. Check for taste, adding
extra lemon juice, or serve with the remaining lemon cut into wedges.
