Lemon Rice Recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Lemon rice is one of the popular variety rice from South India. It is one of the easy and simple variety rice which can be prepared in 15 minutes. I find it easy to prepare Lemon rice than tamarind rice as there is no grinding part and very simple.
