    I usually use the regular old plain brown ones... However I have used the yellow... in an Indian dish called Dal.

    @Chrissy Page , I have found the Red ones get too mushy as well.

    Dal is simply the Hindi word for lentils.

    Yes... the recipe I make is called Spinach Dal.... so Spinach and lentils. It's very tasty.. and totally healthy and vegetarian.. It's a really good side dish IMO.. but it can be a main dish too!!

    I just looked on the calories on the red and brown. Brown is 70 calories for 1/4 cup and red is 130 calories per 1/4 cup.

    That fact alone will make me choose the brown. This is whats on the bags in my pantry, don't know if there are different varieties of red ones that are less.

    I forgot to say that the reason I bought the red/orange ones is because I liked the color but it fades a lot when cooked so I'm not going to be buying it anymore.

    Good idea, why not? A whole wheat bun has less carbs, go for it Chrissy.

    Yikes Ruby, maybe half the bun. I need therapy to eat a whole bun. :)

    I am going to make that though when I get back home.

    Yes Ruby, That is something I will waste time doing for myself. :)

    Too cute though. Also don't eat rice. :)

    Actually looks easy. Maybe when I visit my rice loving younger grandsons.
