Lemon Rice is one of the important variety rice in Indian Cooking.If it's a picnic or lunch boxes or party or functions this will be one of the dish.
Its quick,easy and tasty.I Sometimes try this with brown rice sometimes with white rice and both tastes equally good.
Adding nuts like cashews,peanuts,almonds,pista,walnuts will enhance the flavour of this dish.
Pulses like urad dal,channa dal is added for the same reason,its gives a crunchy bites in the middle and the flavor is enhanced much.These pulses and nuts are essential to make it a tasteful dish.Dont skip those if you want to indulge its fantastic taste.
