Brown rice biryani

Feeling awesome, I am on my way to healthy eating. Brown rice (hulled or unmilled ) is much used in my kitchen these days.The  brown rice is the simplest and healthiest form of rice. Here only the outer layer is removed and thus all the nutrients are present. If the brown rice is milled and polished, the resultant is our white rice, which is less nutritious  in the process and more starchy.
