    Ok, in my never ending quest to make my own everything, I roasted some brown rice to add to some good green tea to make my own gen mai cha (brown rice green tea, my favorite variant). And while I'm certain doing it on the stovetop used too much heat, it worked (and was a good opportunity to use ghee). In any event, the result was roasted brown rice, crunchy, tastey little kernels full of nutritional, fibery goodness that you can eat by the handful. ... what else can I do with them? I have a granola bar recipe I could toss them into, but they seem a bit TOO crunchy for that. Anyone got any ideas? Take ten minutes and make some of your own, and think of something, just coat the bottom of a pan with a super thin layer of oil (I used ghee, but olive oil work work too), toss in a handfull of brown rice and stir often over midium heat. some will even pop like cute miniature pieces of popcorn.

    Just had my serving of Kichari and a can of sardines.

    Gentlemen-
    Make sure you simmer it on a very, very low heat and use enough water.
    I usually use about 6 cups because of the length of time it takes to cook. It usually takes mine a little over an hour. If you use the recommended amount of water, it will be pasty and thick. I like mine a little more loose.
    After it cools some, spoon your individual servings on sheets of QUALITY plastic wrap, fold it in a little
    4 x 4 square and store them in the fridge.
    When you need to eat, put the square in a bowl and heat for 2 - 3 minutes.
    Add a can of sardines, herring, salmon, whatever you wish.

    I've never tested it for an exact time frame, but I imagine it will last over a week, but like anything I wouldn't eat it past 2 weeks in the fridge.

    I eat it once a day, sometimes twice so it doesn't last more than about 5-6 days.
