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..
