Replacing white rice with brown rice is a healthier option. Regular short grain brown rice flavor and consistancy changes the taste of a dish it is added to. My husband and I have found that brown basmati rice is soft and does not interrupt the flavor of our foods. We use Kohinoor brand; found in Indian store.
1/2 cup is worth 4 Weight Watcher Points (1/2 cup)
Rich North Indian Chicken dish AKA: Butter Chicken. an all time favorite!
