Lemon Rice (Chitranna)

Varieties of Rice for Breakfast is very common in Karnataka atleast in Bangalore as far as I have known. Unlike in Tamilnadu where Rice is had only for lunch, its like Rice for Bfast and Dinner is a Taboo there. Well every place has its own kind of practice. I am a rice fan and can eat rice all the three meals a day.
