Lemon Rice is a South Indian dish made by cooking rice with a variety of spices and lemon juice. It is usually served as a side dish or main course and is a popular dish during festivals and special occasions. The dish is known for its bright yellow color and tangy flavor.

To prepare lemon rice, first, the rice is cooked and then flavored with a mixture of spices including mustard seeds, urad dal, chana dal, turmeric powder, curry leaves, and green chilies. The cooked rice is then mixed with a generous amount of lemon juice and salt. Some variations also include roasted peanuts and grated coconut for added flavor and texture.

Lemon rice is often served with other traditional South Indian dishes like sambar, rasam, and coconut chutney. It can also be served as a side dish to non-Indian dishes like grilled chicken or fish.
