      Confused with the term Boiled rice ? This is not cooked rice…Par boiled has been partially boiled when you buy it..Raw rice is completely untreated by heat….In south India, we use par boiled (boiled) rice for normal day to day cooking…Here I used parboiled rice…I have not tried with raw rice for this dosa…to my knowledge, I think both the rice works…Thanks for vising by blog Rani…
