1] How much time should we soak it in water? 2] How many glasses of water should we put if we take 1 glass of brown rice?

Tarla Dalal    The soaking time is 30 minutes. We use a standard cup of 200 ml as a reference. Please use a standard cup and follow the measurements of the recipe.

Tarla Dalal    Soaking is a must. Brown rice needs soaking to speed up the process of cooking.
