simple lemon rice /marudhuskitchenMost befitting travel friendly food here in South Indian houses is the lemon rice I remember my amma making either lemon rice or tamarind rice for picnics we go or even for temple visits.Whether its a tour to distant places or a simple picnic we don’t travel alone as a single family my dear uncle’s family who is my father’s best friend will accompany us and that aunty will prepare either lemon rice or curd rice or tamarind rice/pulisadam,there will be mutual sharing in preparing the dishes and they use to plan this in advance.simple lemon rice /marudhuskitchenWhen its lunch time we use to stop under a road side tree for shade and have our delicious heart warming lunch and continue our journey by cracking jokes and non stop chatting continues right from start till the end !These childhood memories are ever cherishing and really its a treasure to be remembered.One who had tasted Temple lemon rice as prasadam will accept the magical divine taste that is very unique that you will yearn each time you taste it!for me this lemon rice temple prasadham is the best in the whole world. For lemon rice it should be made little tangy so after some time rice will absorb the tangynes all with super good taste.For lemon rice they use to add peanuts or cashews when tempering itself but this time I have roasted cashews separately and added but you can follow the usual method as it is done.

Notes

Usually some roasted peanuts or cashews are added during seasoning itself,but to keep it crispy I have added roasted cashews at the end. After adding lemon juice don't boil it as it will become bitter. I have added some water along with the lemon juice so that the mixture evenly absorbs and coats the rice evenly.
