If you want to make lemon rice of fresh cooked rice, make it very fluffy and not gluey. Each rice grain should be separate. Spread this cooked rice in a big plate for about 10 minutes to cools down and refrigerate for 30 minutes. This will help to keep the rice grain separated and after stir-frying rice will taste better.

  1. Hi Vaidehi, we love lemon rice at our home too. Yours looks delicious.

  2. Hi Vaidehi
    traditional lemon rice recipe includes turmeric..it gives nice colour to the dish.

  3. Hello,
    Thanks for visiting my blog..
    one of my south Indian friend has given me this recipe..Turmeric surely does give nice color, but even without Turmeric this rice looks beautiful. Also turmeric doesn't affect the taste.. however, turmeric can be added according to taste.
