For our daily usage, we buy the Basmati rice cos here we don't get our ponni rice. For Me n My Hubby we get use to having the Basmathi rice for daily, if some of our friends comes to our house that time only i will cook this rice cos they don't feel complete meal without it.
Par boiled rice is good for diabetics, because the starch in it helps the body uses less insulin and also which has low glycemic index value (GI). Here, in breads itself they give low GI varieties of bread and the brown bread comes with mixed seeds. I like brown par-boiled rice which we all know its rich in fibre and low in fat, i like brown bread with mixed seeds than the white bread.
Today am going to show you the Yellow Rice cooked in Par-boiled rice with Baked chicken, this one is comfort and versatile food here for all time. This rice takes bit extra time to cook than our Basmati rice, i cook the Basmati rice in 10 mts but this rice takes about 40 mts to cook soft.

2.Heat oil in the pot , saute the bell peppers and tomatoes just for 3 mts in medium flame ( don't need to cook fully just mild sauteeing is fine) becos the flavours of bell peppers and tomatoes should goes with rice while cooking. If it cooked fully you don't feel the flavour of those items.
3.Now add the washed Par - boiled rice in the pot, stir it well till the oil coats to the rice. ( This par-boiled rice process lot of starch and the cooked rice turns starchy, to avoid that sauteeing the rice in oil).
4.Follow with hot water to the rice, red chilli powder and salt.( here i didn't cooked this rice in pressure cooker so we can check the water while cooking itself).
5.Close the pot with the lid leave it to cook in medium flame it will take bit longer to cook soft n tender.
6.After the rice cooked , if you feel little bit water in the rice means just microwave it till you get fluffy rice or leave it to cook till it turns perfect.
