I'm not at all sure, but my guess is "two lemons." Does that make sense.

If receipe is printed from software, the quantity and the unit are stored in separate fields. That works fine for 2 cups, 2 tablespoons, but what happens when you use whole things like eggs, onions, lemons. My guess is they have to make up a unit, and that nos. is an abbreviation for "numbers." It would be better to leave the units blank, but that may cause a software error.

Do you have other recipes from the same source? I would check recipes that call for some number of whole eggs or onions, to see if they use the same expression.

Thank you very much. I checked different recipes and your
