While at a friend's house, I was reading a few cookbooks and came across a recipe that called fpr "raw converted rice." What is converted rice? Is it converted from or to something, or is it a way of preparation?.
I searched it up and this is what i found (if im wrong hehe just say wont hurt my feelings not my definition) con·vert·ed rice (kn-vûrtd) n.A white rice prepared from brown rice that has been soaked, steamed under pressure to force water-soluble nutrients into the starchy endosperm, and then dried and milled.
Nasty stuff, a processed product. Rice is cooked to death, then reformed under pressure and heat to re-resemble rice. If you closely examine the stuff, each grain is an exact copy. Mind you the only good thing about the stuff is that if you use it as a soup garnish it'll never dissolve like real rice.
