basmati rice, rinsed
1 (2 inch) piece
fresh ginger, minced
lemon, juiced and zested
salt and ground black pepper to taste
This is the best rice recipe I have ever tasted! I made it exactly as stated in the recipe and I wouldn't change a thing!
I thought it had too much lemon and too much ginger and right now I'm really into lemon. My lemons were large so the recipe might be sensitive to size.
Excellent! Followed the recipe, using Low Sodium Chicken Stock and everyone loved it. The bright, fresh flavors of the ginger and lemon made this a perfect side to go with Baked Scallops. We will enjoy this often. Thanks for sharing!
I made this rice (exactly as suggested) as a side dish for lemon pork gyros and it was a hit! Even my two young kids ate every last piece.
Had this with lobster tail, and it complemented the flavour wonderfully. Will definitely be making this rice again.
My whole family LOVED this rice! I had to tweak the recipe because we didn't have lemons (only lime), so I used lemon juice and lime zest. We also did not have basmati rice, so I used jasmine rice. Still turned out DELICIOUS! Thank you!
lemon rice is common in india particularly in south india. I know this dish as a vegetarian. Hi, dont add chicken or any non veggie into this also my suggestion is that basmati rice alone is not accepted. Other qualities of rice is also possible. try it, i like it
Made it exactly as written. Delicious!
