"I like to use Brown Basmati rice but any brown rice will do.will do. Do not use Instant. It takes an hour but the result is worth it. I make the whole recipe and then freeze portion size servings. I say 12 servings but they are fairly small servings."

Original recipe yields 12 servings

Great basic recipe for fluffy brown rice. Into my favorites it goes! That's 1 1/3 cups water. Recipe should be changed to reflect that.
