Does Shirataki Rice count?
Jasmine
Basmati
Long grain white
Black Japonica
Forbidden Rice
and some sort of nutty short grain red or brown rice that I wish I could remember what it was because I really like it

I'm not sure of this personally, but I heard that feeding birds uncooked rice can kill them, as it swells up with liquid in their stomach. I know what a nice individual you are from reading your posts, so please understand I do not mean to say this to you in any deragatory way. Just thought you might want to research whether or not this is a good idea.

I usually have an assortment of white types, one brown, & a wild rice plus always some mixed blends that have quinoa etc.

But I'm quite fond of "popcorn rice" that I get from Cajun Grocer online.

Basmati
Arborio
Rice a roni home style with Basmati, orzo and chicken broth. Please try it.
Pantry is about 3x8x16 but organized and shelved according to plastic storage boxes, the few canned items we have and glass canning jars with screw tops. Doors are covered with black wire shelves for spices in glas jars.

That's an urban myth; raw rice doesn't hurt birds.

Brown rice only. Was raised on Minute Rice, and will never go back.

Wild rice is delicious, but only have that when dining out.

It smells like popcorn while it's cooking. I first bought it to use for jambalaya, but I just like it plain too. It tastes like butter has already been added. I don't live near the gulf, so this is place where I get gulf shrimp from. Now those are melt in your mouth wonderful.

Only rice we keep at home is brown rice. On rare occasions such as a holiday dinner we'd offer wild rice.
