    "Wu(5) Gu(oat) Rice"

    I think besides the brown rice, my ma also throws in a few other types of rice. She calls it 'wu (5) gu (oat?)' rice. I should make a trip to the supermarket soon to educate myself a bit [/QUOTE]

    Dear Glossie,

    May i know where can i find "wu gu rice"? Because i cannot find it in cold storage woodlands branch.

    Thank you.

    Well i also simply love brown rice! I started eating it a couple of years back and I don't touch white rice since then... very healthy... my mum likes to cook it together with white rice cos my siblings dun like the idea of brown rice only, but she cooked mine seperately cos i dun like white rice...

    yes, it's an acquired taste, but once you are on brown rice, you don't want to switch back to white rice. add 1-2drops of lemon juice to the rice b4 cooking, it'll have a refreshing taste.

    she mixes it pumpkin or fish.

    during the period whereby my stomach was really weak, i ate this everyday
    strengthens my stomach greatly

    yes i like to mix brown rice into my white. i still cannot take the taste of pure brown rice. plus if it's all brown, hubby won't eat.

    i am finishing the small pack of brown rice from Fancl. i won't buy it again, somehow this round type grain does not absorb water easily or something because it comes out rather slimy and soggy. i like my rice hard. i can't use less water because then there's not enough water to cook. i had better luck with other brands!

    My ma still uses microwave to cook rice. Maybe it takes about 5-10 minutes lesser to cook?

    As long as I'm bringing lunchbox to office, I'll cook brown rice and I . I just treat it as another form of rice and I use rice cooker to get them done. It doesn't take longer time I assume. Due to pre-rice-cooker days, I just use microwave to get them cooked

    I think you can pair brown rice with any dishes, as in how u pair your white rice with.

    2nd Angie. My mom does that as well to soften the husk of the brown rice so it cooks easily when mixed with white rice.
