Rice is the staple grain in South India. Apart from having the rice with Sambhar, Rasam and chutneys, rice is also cooked into one-dish meals like Coconut Rice, Lemon Rice and Tamarind Rice, which are easy to make and also handy to pack in lunch boxes.

Unlike pulaos and biryanis, which focus on spices like cardamom and cloves, South Indian versions of rice dishes rely on a tadka of ingredients like mustard seeds, dry red chillies, cumin seeds, urad and curry leaves. Enter, to discover several exciting ways in which rice can be prepared.

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.
