To make lemon pepper seasoning, mix together 1 stalk (white part only) lemongrass, finely chopped, the zest of 1 lemon and 1 green chilli, finely chopped.  Or you can use store-bought lemon pepper seasoning, available from the spice section of your supermarket.

To make toasted rice, place ½ cup jasmine rice in a frying pan or wok and stir-fry over medium heat until aromatic and lightly toasted. Allow to cool, then grind to a fine powder. Keep in an airtight container.
