Lemon Rice Recipe - Lime Rice(Elumichai Sadham)

Lemon Rice(Elumichai Sadham) reminds me of travel esp train journeys when I see people around having it in banana leaf neatly wrapped inside a newspaper.I was not fond of variety rice until I started cooking. Now I know how handy they are and are apt for travels too. Lemon rice with papad is my fav combination.
