Dishes made with brown rice are a notch tastier than the same made with white rice. The rice we bought is designated on the package as coral rice. It has a nice smell and when you boil it, the grains don’t go soft on you and stick together but stay separate. This kind of rice is easy to cook and the dishes come out so nice that you will want to make them again.
