I have recently started including brown rice in my diet. I dont like brown rice before, but when hubby and me started diet, we have strictly avoided rice, but when we feel like having rice, this is the rice which i prefer to use. I bought this container of brown rice when we visited supermarket before, i totally loved it a lot and using it a lot now. I am using this for making biryani as well and finding it turn out good.
