I think it's more to do with the tiny broken grains of rice will mush up

why would a broken grain go mushy anymore than a whole grain?

Greater surface area to absorb water? Damaged structure which can't hold its shape?

I brought this when it was on offer for £10 it's actually ok and isn't mushy

Thanks. My mum prefers them broken already for rice pudding.

greater surface area so it cooks quicker so less chance of it falling apart?
but clearly there is a demand for this or it wouldn't be in the shops, so it should be judged on price not by someone's inability to cook it correctly

I'm not saying there isn't a demand for it, they are making use of what would be wasted and the price reflects that.

As with all deals here its also the value of the product not just the price. Some people may love it for the price, others may think it's a waste due to mishaps

you have to have a poor sense of logic to think I'll vote this cold because I can't cook
Tesco everyday value broken basmati rice is £7.50 for 10kg

I cook rice on a regular basis. My kids love rice. They wont notice that rice grain isnt as long as it should be. Usually the first time I make a certain brand, I may get the water quantity wrong but after that made perfectly. In this case I will use less water than normal. As a rule for each of mug of rice its two times water or one mug less or more depending on the brand.

should be great For making dosa. as you will soak and grind anyway. Should be great For making rice too. The price is great too.

what is dosa I've always wanted to know


its like a pan cake but no eggs etc. There are many types of dosa. Most are made with Rice with or with out lentils or oats or wheat or any other grain or just rice on its own. They can be either fermented naturally by leaving them over night or fire a few hours or just add some thing For carbonation like baking soda or fruit salts for instant carbonation for a fluffier batter. Or some are made fresh and don't need fermenting or any additives. They can be mixed with various things like herbs or onions etc or just topping while frying them of a pan. Just a bit of salt plus or minus Jeera (cumin) to taste while grinding the batter in a grinder or mixer.

Then fry on a pan with drizzle of oil. some are fried and arranged at the Same time by covering with a lid to steam the top part. Some are fried on both sides. Each one has a diffrent texture and taste. Best had with fresh chutney (coconut or coconut and coriander or various other versions) or any South Indian type of vegetable or potato fry or sambar.

Different types can be thick or fluffy or harder or light and very think almost wet thin silky melt in the mouth like NEER Dosa.

There might be some Dosa recipes my food play list on youtube. You can see the link to on my YouTube Chanel on my hukd profile. If I get the time I will try to make some fresh NEER dosa this weekend and try to make a video as I find many of the neer dosa ones on youtube are rubbish (in my opinion anyway).
