South Indian-Style Lemon Rice

 made it  |  0 reviews   |   photos

"Rice lightly flavored with lemon. This is a favorite Indian dish. It is especially popular with children (compare to American mac and cheese.) It is very simple to make. Our family often eats it on Sunday nights after church. I put the rice in the rice cooker and then when we get home I do the rest of the cooking. It takes about 10 minutes total. Serve with hard-boiled eggs."
