furthermore, i would also like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variants to the 3 leftover rice recipes. firstly, for this post, i have specifically used basmati rice which makes it more attractive and presentable. but that’s not mandatory and you can use any types of edible rice type like sona masuri, ponni rice. secondly, for the lemon rice variant, you may also add grated raw mangoes to make it mango rice too. moreover, in lemon rice try to make it spicy as the lemon would lower the spice heat. lastly, if you are serving this for later, try to steam it before serving rather than microwave it. steam makes it soft whereas microwave can make it dry.
