            Lemon rice is usually made with seasoning of groundnuts, but with fresh green peas around, I love to use it in all dishes. I add the fresh peas in the seasoning and let it to crackle. Boiling will wither the taste of it. Use a lot of coriander and curry leaves to give the splendid fragrance and be sure to cook the seasonings really well. The crispiness of the lentils is liked by many.
