Parboiled Rice is partially boiled in the husk, which increases its nutritional value and improves its cooking qualities. AKILA’S Premium Grade Long Grain Parboiled Rice cooks up with loose, separate, slightly firmer grains and is never sticky. This versatile rice is great when served with stir-fries, stews and curries, with chicken, lamb, beef, pork or goat, as well as with vegetable dishes such as Jollof rice.

Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown colour due to the presence of molasses, a type of sugar-derived syrup. It has slightly less concentrated sweetness than white sugar. The molasses in brown sugar retains moisture, so using it will result in baked goods that are softer yet denser, such as zucchini bread and rich cookies.
