Lemon Peas Rice

Lemon rice is a simple rice variety that we make a lot in South India. My children prefer this kind of variety rice for their lunch boxes. One such day I decided to add some cooked peas along with it, just to include some veggies to their lunch box. You can also add some carrots instead of the peas.
