This is the first time I am using brown rice in my recipe. The texture of brown rice is amazing. Once cooked it didn’t resemble rice at all, it looks more like moong. Brown rice is not a boon for just for diabetic people, but for all rice eaters. Rich in fibre, this amazing rice makes a superfood if you can toss in some nutritious vegetables and greens. That is exactly what I did with brown rice. I made it for my kids lunch box, tossed in some button mushrooms and fresh fenugreek leaves.

Serve Mushroom Methi Brown Rice along with Tomato Onion Cucumber Raita, Beetroot Raita or any other Raita of your choice.
