Lemon rice is a quick and tasty dish that you can make very quickly if you have cooked rice in the house. My mother used to make this for us when we came back from school or on Sundays for a quick lunch. It is delicious and very refreshing. Serve with some plain curd.
Another classic Andhra preparation. This dish goes perfectly with ‘Aaku pappu’ (dal with greens). I even like it as an accompaniment to khichdi. This tastes best with home-made buttermilk, but you can use commercial buttermilk too.
