This time i incorporated this magic veggie to the humble lemon rice. Lemon rice or Chitranna as it is popularly known here is one such meal. The flavors of ginger, lemon and peanuts make it even more lovable. Easy to make for lunch box or a breakfast for people who like eating rice for breakfast. Also great for travels. Combine with a packet of chips or papad and its a heavenly combo.
