RECIPE BACKSTORY
Per author: My hubby brought home these limes to add to some drinks and I had a few left over. It is commonly taken on train trips in India along with some eggplant curry. We also serve it at temple functions with other foods. It is called lime rice, but you can also use lemons. Another variation is peanut rice, where you can add this peanut flavor to the rice.
