How many times have we thought rice is a blessing? We use it for holy purposes but we also can pressure up a quick pulao or khichdi when hunger pangs are drumming away! This is one grain that is about 98% percent digestible. In India we are familiar with Basmati, Patna or brown rice but it is also available as Italian Rice and Glutinous Rice which is popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

Soak the bread slices in one cup of water for a little while. Take them out and squeeze to remove excess water. Drain and grind the rice with ¼ cup of water to a smooth paste.
