Gooseberry Lemon Rice

How about making a beautiful rice dish with both gooseberries and lemon?.Actually i prepared this rice coz of less quantity of gooseberries and lemon i had in my fridge. Since both goes awesome in rice, i thought of combining them both together for making this incredible, simple rice. Trust me this rice tastes absolutely fabulous and you can pack them easily for a lunch box. This tangy rice goes for an easy preparation as much as like lemon rice. The addition of grated gooseberries gives a fabulous taste and mild sweet tanginess to this simple rice.

Dont hesitate a second to give a try to this fabulous combination, give an interesting twist to the usual lemon rice by adding gooseberries to them or vice versa. With a spicy side dish, am sure everyone at home will definitely enjoy this rice very much.Today is the first thursday of the month and its time to post for Vegan Thursdays, an vegan event running twice.

2cups Cooked rice
1/4cup Grated gooseberries
1/4cup Lemon juice
