Microwaved Lemon Rice

Lemon rice is a South Indian rice recipe with a tangy and delicious taste. Its quite easy to prepare and a very good lunch box recipe.  Even when in a hurry you can also make it without much hassle. I take it simply with salads or raita and it tastes awesome. Try it out in microwave and see how easy and tasty it is. N'Joy!!!
