Hai Friends .. Hope everyone is doing great…I wish you all a very very happy weekend…I am completely busy this weekend, because I have two cake orders and one cookie order in my hand. So how could I not..I will let you know the results soon..Now coming back to today’s recipe..Lemon rice is a must in our house for once a week..Somedays we even have it twice or thrice..This is a quick and simple dish to make if you have only minutes in your hands. A awesome spiced up rice with a hint of tangy taste.
Many people skip the turmeric in this dish.. But I strongly suggest you to add it because that gives the awesome colour which a lemon rice should have..Amma makes this along with her signature potato poriyal( which I am yet to post)…But I often like to have it with this potato roast. Lemon rice with potato is a perfect combo..And this is one of my friend named eswari’s favorite dish, she can eat it all day without getting bored..I know you too will love it..So hope you try it and let me know how it came out.
