Parboiled Rice - This “rough” rice has gone through a steam-pressure process before milling that gelatinizes the starch in the grain. This process produces a more separate grain that is light and fluffy when cooked. Converted rice is a type of parboiled rice that has been further pre-cooked, which ultimately allows you to whip up dishes of rice even faster.
Shankar Thanjavur Ponni Rice is a variety of rice cultivated in Southern India. It's parboiled rice that is steamed before milling and is partially boiled in the husk. Parboiling, therefore, makes parboiled white rice nutritionally similar to brown rice.
