Lemon Rice With Carrots

Lemon Rice: An Unplanned Meal

I use lemons regularly in my kitchen. They are a great source of vitamin C, calcium, iron, fiber, and other nutrients. They boost your immune system. This tangy, mild-flavored fruit gives a kick even to those dishes that are otherwise bland.

I always take making lemon rice lightly, meaning I'm not concerned about it turning out poorly--it's always delicious. This recipe is so simple and easy that everybody will think that way. To make it healthier and tastier, I cooked the rice with some diced carrots.

Let me share the detailed recipe with you.

      It seems to be of some great taste. I prepare all these fried rice dishes. But, not added lemon to it except the general Lemon Rice which is prepared without frying the rice (just like the tamarind rice of our South Indians that is prepared mostly in all temples also).
