Views/ideas on wholemeal/brown basmati rice please. I try to use when I can as the healthier option. I cook with the same amount of water as white, add the same flavourings, steam for 28 instead of 12 mins and rest for 12 mins the same. But I find it dry and not as nice as white.
I can use long grain brown instead of white with other cuisine no problem, but need help to make brown basmati better.

I find 1/4 of a cup of rice per person is a reasonable serving.

thanks @Jo dunn ! I use brown basmati normally. I find that if I cook it with 2 parts water to one part rice ,it's usually ok. add rice tobpsn, pour on boiling water from kettle, bring to boil, cover with lid, reduce heat to minimum and cook for 30 mind. water should be absorbed, rice cooked and separate. hope that's helpful @pauline1305 .

I think your expert here would be @Sue Geen, as I know she enjoys this kind of healthy rice! @pauline1305
