Lemon rice is one of the most wanted lunch box recipes my kids.My daughter & son love it the most and prefer it mostly for their lunch.In a week at least for two days their lunch would be this simple rice.Some add lemon juice after taking it from heat but I add it when on heat and doesn't find any difference I have heard it would taste sour when we add while cooking. Potato roast is the best combo for it.
