    I never see brown rice here for Indian cooking, but I do see it (about half the time) for Thai. I do know (academically) that India does sometimes use brown rice, but I really love the white basmati rices in combination with the Indian dishes I've had or cooked on my own.

    I think both brown and white rices provide health benefits - just different ones.

    I prefer basmati with Indian too. Its aromatic and it is much better at setting off curry flavours (I think).

    @Yorky - do you see brown rice used in Thai dishes in Thailand?

    We don't eat out much but on the times that we have, I can say that I've never seen brown/black rice served in a local restaurant. Don't forget that I'm out in the sticks, not in the metropolis. My snooker mate eats out a lot in Bangkok, I'll ask him tomorrow.

    If I remember, of course.
    rascal and morning glory like this.

    I've stayed in Bangkok a couple of times, I've never seen brown rice served. In hotel or eating out.
