Lemon rice is one of the most popular SOUTH INDIAN RICE RECIPES. Making lemon rice is one of the simplest and less time consuming BREAKFAST RECIPES. If you already have some pre-cooked rice then the dish gets done in less than 15 minutes. Lemon rice is made by mixing the gojju with white rice. Lemon tastes good on its own. But you can also enjoy it with pickle, chutney or papad.  During festival, we make the same dish but without onion for neyvedyam. DO YOU WANT TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE WITHOUT ANY HUSTLE??
