When Sharmi announced JFI-Rice I try to taste a new varity rice that I never tasted before.In my kitchen,I will always have Raw Rice,Parboiled Rice and Basmati Rice.A new entry came to my kitchen.My husband really liked to have this because of its chewy texture.I thought it will be like normal basmti rice taste.Its not,tasted like a handpounded rice or red rice or brown rice.We both enjoyed eating with oriya Dalma,I made this for orissa but never posted:( I have to say thank for sharmi and swad they made me to explore new thing and receipe.I never tasted oriya dish before and I liked mainly their Panch Putana.(five ingredients for seasoning)

Brown rice takes bit more time to cook than normal basmati rice.More about rice see
here. Dalma and dahi baingana receipes adopted from Purba by Lakshmi parida through this site.

A unknown fact for me after visitng oriya cuisine,they are also using Rice extensively.I want to try and taste their sweet dishes with black pepper.
