Lemon Rice

Lemon rice reminds me of my days in Bangalore. One of my colleague used to bring this for lunch. She used to bring different variety of rice, a simple chutney or a pickle and it was awesome. But some how I never used to try variety in rice until recently . I was inspired by my friend and neighbour to start making the same.

  1. My cook stopped coming when we shifted our house and I had this phobia for cooking. Thanks to your easy recipes which saved me. Now there is a big “NO” to the idea of hiring a cook.
