TIPS

see my video for the instructions

HEALTHIER VERSION

Brown rice is a healthier choice than white rice for most people due to brown rice's higher fiber, magnesium and zinc content. 1 cup of white rice contains 0.6 g fiber while 1 cup of brown rice contains 3.5 g fiber; If you prefer white rice, make sure that you purchase "enriched" rice, meaning minerals have been added to boost the nutrient content. Using a non-stick pan and greasing it with a cooking spray will help you reduce the oil quantity used during preparation.
