Lemon rice with a “twist”

Now you might be thinking, what is this “twist”? Its nothing but I have added egg in lemon rice. Lemon rice is a very common dish in south Indian cuisine. We eat lemon rice a lot and when my small one started eating rice she loved this rice. So sometimes I add egg while making this rice for her. If I make them separately like lemon rice and scrambled egg, she picks up only scrambled egg. So I combined both and she started liking this. 

We once tasted her rice and it was so yummmmmmy!!! From then on whenever we pack rice for journey we make it like this and its delicious. I think many of you might have tried this also.

Lemon rice can be made with left over rice. This can be made easily for lunch or dinner when you feel lazy to spend much time in kitchen. This rice can be eaten with pickle and pappads, no need of any curry.

  2. Eggs- 2nos
