Lemon Rice is an all-time favourite rice preparation in South India, where it is made on a regular basis for lunch or dinner, offered as prasad to devotees at temples, served as part of a wedding spread, and carried frequently in the dabba to work or school.

With a holistic flavour that combines spice and tang, this rice does not need any complex accompaniments – just a papad or some crispy potato wafers would do!
