Whoever said cooking is not my forte,should understand cooking is not just making complex dishes but even simple ones.It is easy to cook even with less ingredients.Lemon rice is a great way to use left over rice.Chitranna as you call it in Karnataka,is an all time favourite.
Food waste is a reality we should all fight together.My mum has been using this recipe since my childhood.She being a working mum always used left over rice of dinner to make a yummy breakfast.Sometimes fried rice or lemon rice side dish and even rice paratha.As a mum now,I know why 🙂 I hate wasting food and try to finish everything we make daily.
Kids love it in their lunch box and so do elders.It also takes the mundane rice feeling out on a weekday.You may also add in some crispy chips and a nice tangy potato curry to go with it.This is great for vegan option.
You can also have some yogurt dip along with it or some ‘ghee’.
Quick and a great fix from eating boring oily food at office mess.
Below recipe has addition of peas/carrots to actual recipe.
