Brown rice also known as ‘hulled’ or ‘unmilled’ rice which is produced simply by removing the outermost layer of the grain (husk). The bran layer and germ of the grain remains intact giving the rice a mild, nutty flavor and chewier. It is also claimed as more nutritious than white rice. When cooked, the rice appears fluffy, light and stays separate. Brown rice is great for making fried rice or it can also be served plain with any kind of healthy side dishes. However, the rice requires longer cooking time because the bran layer forms a barrier for water absorption.
