Although the 34-year-old has not been a regular amongst the goals since rejoining the Protectors at the start of 2012, largely due to the fact that he's been deployed in a variety of midfield roles, he rolled back the years at the Bishan Stadium by inspiring his side to victory with two well-taken goals.
Indra opened the scoring two minutes before the break when he latched onto a chipped pass and sent a ferocious half-volley into the back of the net, before making it 2-0 in the 53rd minute after meeting Firdaus Idros' pinpoint cross with a clinical first-time strike into the bottom corner.
Home's evening got better in the 73rd minute when Jordan Webb scored a fine third goal, before an Osman Yusoff own-goal three minutes from time completed the rout.
But there was no denying the night belonged to Indra, and despite his increasing years, Lee believes he can still continue to play a influential role for club and country, having been recalled to the Singapore national team earlier this year under new coach Bernd Stange.
"Last year when I decided to sign Indra he was actually playing in the NFL Division 1 [with Keppel Monaco]," he said. "He was very happy.
"I've tried to give him many chances to play, even if he's had to play as a second striker. Now he's become a national team player again and he proved his ability once more tonight [Monday].
"I'm very happy to see him do well and I hope he can continue to contribute to Singapore football in the national team."
The win also all but guarantees Home's place in the top six with only two matches remaining before the "half round", and their South Korean tactician admits it was extremely vital that his side had picked up all three points against the Young Tigers.
"Of course, tonight [Monday] was very important for Home United," Lee added. "Now we're third and we'll try our best and keep going until the last moment.
"Frankly speaking, there were a few games where we didn't play our best but I think, throughout the course of the season, we've played well in most of them.
"Even when we didn't get the good results that we were expecting, we tried to show our style of play and pressed on the ball together. We tried to keep possession although sometimes we conceded from set-pieces as our players aren't the tallest.
"But I'm expecting to be playing against the top five [in the "half round"] and if the players play like they did tonight [Monday], I'm confident. That's why I want to thank them for their effort."
Another positive from Monday's game was the fact Lee was able to give centre-back Sevki Sha'ban, who is still on the comeback trail from a serious injury, another 30-minute run-out.
And although the Protectors boss has continued to remain patient with the ex-LIONSXII man's return, he believes the defender is a shoo-in for a place in his starting XI.
"Unfortunately he [Sevki] got injured during his time at LIONSXII and it took him about ten months to recover," Lee explained. "But when I choose to sign him he was in my best eleven for Home United.
"I know he's been trying his best to come back and he's now played two games, including today [Monday]. I think he needs to build more muscle because he has an explosive style.
"But he has experience and I believe he'll come back strongly. He's showed he's stable at centre-back and that's why I'm quite happy.
"Hopefully he will have no more injuries. I think I'll need to give him a chance step by step."
Home are next in action on Friday when they entertain bottom side Courts Young Lions at the Bishan Stadium.
