Lemon Rice

In this sweltering heat , temperature hovering  around 40 degree celcius in India , it had to be Lemon Rice.


Cool and giving comfort to the soul and also some respite from heat.

This is widely cooked in South India and prepared with a simple tempering of mustard seeds, curry leaves, red chilli .  This type of rice can be had with veg and non-veg dishes according to your own liking  I today had it  with  chicken 65 ( recipe will be posting soon) or else you can simply have it with some papadums and chutney.

Serves : 4 to 5 person
