We use basmati rice in our house. We eat rice a good 3 nights a week.
I quite like brown rice but DH doesn't, so I don't bother having it in our pantry (DH is the one who generally cooks our meals that have rice with them).

I like brown, my partner likes white. I do like white coconut rice with my takeway thai though.
I have been looking for black though. Is it only in the health food store, as none at supermarket.

I like both, depends what we're having.
But actually basmati rice is the lowest in GI & carbs, not brown rice. Jasmine & arborio are the worst.

Can you believe I have never made a Risotto before??? I was brought up in Europe and Asian meals weren't as popular there as the Middle Eastern. Even those I hardly ate.
We always used to eat brown rice at home, but mum would just cook it dry and it was yuck. I use absorption which makes it much more fluffier and yummier.
I have used Jasmine a few times, but can't taste the difference between that and plain white rice. Probably because I mix sauce through it.

It was quite long grains I remember and they swelled up and kind of burst open the outer casing? But they were kind of like a reed rather than a grain.. Or am I thinking of something else?
ETA I just googled and think I may have had unmilled black rice (which is in fact a rice after all so don't know what made me think otherwise) which could explain the outer casing?

I love wild rice.
Otherwise, I tend to choose brown these days. More flavour, better texture.

I have never tried brown rice, I might buy some next week though because it actually looks quite tasty. We only ever have Basmati made in the rice cooker, it is always perfect!
