Lemon Rice: In Microwave
This is one of my favorite recipes. This is really a great recipe for using left over rice. This recipe requires only 5 minutes for preparation and only 7 minutes for cooking. This really a very good menu in this summer. And by this menu you can utilise your leftover rice and serve them as new.
