I'm going to be making the Shrimp Biryani tonight and would like to try it with Brown Basmati Rice instead of white. I don't have much experience cooking Brown Rice (re: none). I normally soak ANY rice over night and rinse it thoroughly before cooking and have found that this method works really well for me as I hate sticky glutenous rice!
So, since I've soaked this brown rice over night does anyone have any recommendations as to how much h20 I need to add for two cups of brown rice and what I can expect the cook time to be? PS: I will not be using a rice cooker, I'll be frying onion and spices in a pan, then ideally adding the water, adding the rice and baking it in a hot oven until done.
Thank you in advance, I'd appreciate any insight!
