Lemon Methi Rice

I wanted to post a juice recipe for today's lemon recipe. But in the last movement I changed my post. Because I got some fresh methi leaves in the market today so I decided to make this delicious Methi Lemon rice.
                                                     This is  little different then normal lemon rice. Fresh chopped methi leaves gives a wonderful flavor. Methi and lemon flavors blends very well with the food, means the combination goes well. And the seasoning with ground nuts and channa dal gives acrunchy texture to the rice. Totally this is a flavor full and perfect dish for lunch box too.
