Lemon rice

Hurry up!!! Today is the last day for MBP:Snacks &Savouries...Rush in Ur entries!!!

Lemon rice reminds me of the citrus flavoured rice with hint of gingery taste which awakens Ur taste buds...If u have watched Ratatouille movie, Anton ego (Food Critic) will get memories of his mother's cooking...same feeling happens to me every time I make Lemon rice. I luv it..My mom used to make it during our trips. It reminds me of wonderful family tours and unlimited fun we had during those trips!!!!Lemon rice with boiled egg is a good travel food. U can just stop over the rest area to Have a wonderful lunch..Potato chips is also best combo for lemon rice..

It is a comfort food. If u have leftover rice, U can make it under 5 mts..Easy Breezy Lemon rice!!!:)

I love lemon rice; it makes me recall the happy days during the school excursions (we used to bring lemon rice with vadava thuvayal and egg masala) yummmm, this is perfect fot hot summer days; wouldn't refuse a non veg side dish though (poricha kari or prawns masala ) :)


Recently My friend ,told me about the lemon rice he learned from his friend and insisted that i try it out,but his recipe was so vague ,that i thought to first Google out some good blogs before giving it a shot
Thankfully i need not move around much,coz this one sounds similar to wht my friend told ,but with exact measurements
Thnks for sharing this..i am off to impress my friend now ;-)


Your lemon rice is so tempting! Yeah, it's a tasty travel food and for picnic too! :)
