The lemon rice was indeed, very lemony. This was really a great rice dish.
I really like this and my son asks for this dish. I used to eat lemon rice in a Indian restaurant/grocery. I had trouble finding a recipe that looked like it was a match, but this was the one. I add a few curry leaves and some extra lemon juice and a little lemon zest too. To counteract the sourness of the extra lemon I added a little sugar. Served with Lemon Ginger Fish and it's a great match.
