Now, i have a different way of making lemon rice. In fact more than one way. I experiment often with a single recipe, changing an ingredient here and there or adding something and removing something. This version of my lemon rice is something that i learnt from my landlady in Bangalore. This was probably the only breakfast that i ate and as well as packed for my lunch. I m sure you all have a version too. But give mine a shot if you feel bored of your version sometime or if you have a kid that screws up his nose too often.
