Lemon Rice most famous dish comes from South India. Its one of my sister’s favorite food. She is big fan of lemon rice. This dish is so easy and quick to make that in no time i serve it to my family and it get more easier if the rice is pre – cooked. Left over rice are very much suitable for this dish. Yes use left over rice. Best recipe for kids in lunch.
Lemon rice contains tangy, chili taste and curry leaves flavour gives it yummy. Ingredients are so simple. basic home ingredients are used to make it.
Raita and Papad is best to serve with it. It is an authentic dish from south of India. people found of south dishes or anyone who loves tangy chatpata taste will love it. Rice is much good to go during lunch. But you can serve this dish for dinner too as it alone has so many taste together.
During parties or any function we make so many dishes and rice is much important but as plain rice do not look good to serve we keep option of different rice so Lemon rice helps us to serve the best things with such great flavour in no time.
So do follow the simple steps and serve it in no time, Happy cooking 😀
