Quick Lemon Rice

Updated on May 25, 2014

In India, variety rices play a major role for pregnant ladies. When a girl is pregnant, her family and friends join to celebrate the marking of the seventh month of pregnancy. During this ceremony nine different types of recipes are prepared with white rice. All the varieties are then relished by the new mother to be. It is believed that this celebration gives comfort and good luck to the baby and the mother. One such variety rice prepared is the lemon rice.

If you like a tangy and spicy recipe then this is the one for you. Lemon is used by most type of cuisines as a flavoring agent usually at the end of preparation of the meal. As a hot country we are fond of lemons and extend this love to food. Lemon rice is a dry dish. For those who cannot have this directly, it is best to take it with pickle or gravy. It is one of the easiest recipes perfect for a quick lunch. I have made this often for picnic lunches as this is a great recipe for quick cooking for a large number of people. This is again made out of white rice which is rich in carbohydrates. The tangy quality of the recipe can be adjusted according to the number of lemons you want to use. The recipe given here is moderately spicy and tangy.
