Somehow dint like it that much. Maybe because my rice became lumpy after it got cooked. Dint use the brown rice.

   Dear Manali, you are right. The rice will probably turn lumpy if brown rice is not used, because of the proportion of water in this recipe is for brown rice. For white you will have to proportionately use less water.
