Asian Style Fried Brown Rice

I recently found Brown Basmathi Rice at a health food store and I have become a fan of it. Brown Rice is more healthy since it’s a whole grain and has a lower Glycemic Index. If you haven’t tried Brown Rice, start using it in salads and stir-frys and you will get accustomed to its taste. I like any kind of Pulav or Fried Rice made using Brown Rice.

Here is the recipe for a Chinese Style Fried Rice using Brown Rice. You can use any type of Brown Rice preferably Brown Basmathi Rice.
