Lemon Rice(Yellow rice) is a popular dish in the southern part of India. Lemon rice is prepared with mixing lemon juice, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, chili, peanuts, and Asafoetida. Lemon Rice (mostly cooked with white rice) will increase the appetite due to its amazing aroma and bright yellow color. The recipe for Lemon rice is very quick and easy. I will be sharing another Yellow rice – GeelRys an African recipe in the next post. GeelRys Recipe link here
