Rice is the staple food of Asians.
Practically, all Malaysians take rice (or rice porridge) twice a day.
White rice is invariably the choice of majority of Malaysians. It tastes and looks nice.
For health reason, there are increasing number of Malaysians turning to brown rice now.
Brown rice is under-milled rice and hence it has much higher nutritional value.
I have been taking brown rice at home for the last 15 years. It is nice too. Most important, it maintains my good health.
In the last 2 years, brown rice is also served in some vegetarian restaurants in the urban centres.
More and more people are aware of the important of taking brown rice.
It is a good sign.
