Suitability of dry-heat (roasting) parboiling process for brown (dehusked) rice of two fine and two coarse varieties was studied. While the fine grain varieties got parboiled to a mild degree, by roasting in hot sand (1:4) at 180ºC to 200ºC for 1.75 to 2.75 min, the coarse varieties, having white-belly, could not be fully parboiled. The parboiled rice produced by this treatment required less time to cook than normal steam-parboiled rice. Steaming of brown rice for 30 to 40 min under mild (0.5 kg/cm2) pressure after soaking for 1 h and tempering for about 5 h (room temperature) produced fully parboiled rice from both fine and coarse varieties. Cooking properties of this mildly pressure-parboiled brown rice were very close to those exhibited by normal steam-parboiled rice.
