For Asians, rice are part of our meals.. a breakfast, dinner or lunch will not be complete without a rice.. what do you think? Personally, i love to eat rice.. i will never be fulfilled with my meal without a rice.. it must be part of my dine course..

Hello ellebj, yes for us all Asians, rice is an integral part of our daily meals! In India there are some regions that will eat rice only once a day and some regions where people eat rice for all meals a day, including breakfast! We Indians have at least 500 different ways of preparing rice dishes including main course to sweets and desserts and now we have absorbed the chinese, thai and malaysian ways of cooking rice as well. :)

I agree ellebj We asians prefer rice, in india people in the east go for wheat mainly , eat less rice, but in south the reverse is true, i am from chatissgarh, here we eat both. Because of diabetes neither me nor my wife eat rice any more, it is only once in a month she cooks pulao rice, may be with meat or veggy type, but we take half a plate with chapati or paratha with less ghee or oil. rice certainly adds to ones weight.. Thanks for sharing this nice discussion Best of luck. Professor

I love rice!I don't eat it with every meal.But,I love dishes that have rice in them,like chicken and rice casserole,rice pilaf and so on. I like my rice cooked boiled,steamed or fried.I like white and brown rice. I love it especially with oriental food.

I do, but I can skip it for breakfast but not for lunch and dinner. I remember when I was a child we can eat it alone without any viand to go with it and we would only put a little cooking oil and salt and it is yummy for us already.

Yes, a lot of Asians eat rice each time. But I think it would be better not to eat it at night before sleeping.

hi dear friend, i am an Asian, and i love rice a lot. the favorite form i love them are steamed and i love to have them with kidney beans. kidney beans are one of my favorite dishes. i can eat them boiled with just salt, i can make a taco with onion and some sauces and i can enjoy them with bread and plain any way. i love rice the most with them. i also sometime like steamed rice stir fried with lots of vegetables and little green chilly also. as you have written, i also feel my plate incomplete without it and never feel fulfilled.

Hello there. Yes, as a Filipino, rice is part of our daily meal. I can eat rice without dish or viands. We call it sinangag. :) Chowking, a famous fastfood offers Chao fan which is like vietnamese rice

I like rice. I eat rice for dinner almost everyday. I used to have to have rice for dinner everyday otherwise, I felt like I couldn't function right but not anymore, I mean I like rice but I won't feel like crap if I don't have any.

I love rice myself. How I end up with this addiction I don't know, especially with pepper steak. I buy a bag of Bashmati rice from the store and it takes me a month to go through it. It is a 20 pound bag.
