See the health benefits of eating fermented rice (Palaya pazhayasadham) and home-made yogurt.

A Human body has 50 to 75 trillion human cells and more than 100 trillion bacteria cells and most of them in gut . Now researchers are finding that, it is the ratio of good bacteria over bad bacteria in gut that is the cause for obesity, allergies, immunity, high cholesterol, Autism (???), diabetes, depression and many more. So keep gut with good bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are good bacteria.

see many recent references like

Questions asked.

Do we need to throw the water in which the rice was soaked before cooking or do we need to cook the rice in the same water in which the brown rice was soaked?
It is better to cook in the same water the rice has been soaked to prevent loss of nutrients.

Is it okay, if we can cook rice in the morning and directly add buttermilk and have it instead of fermenting the rice overnight?
If you add buttermilk, lactic acid bacteria dominates.
As we add the buttermilk, anyway the good bacteria will be introduced into our body along with the Vit B12 through rice. In india natural fermentation occurs without buttermilk addition. The trick is to mix rice with clean hands. Then while mixing naturally good skin bacteria stumbles into the rice and start to grow and ferment rice. Then yogurt is not needed.

Thanks doctor.
Could you please explain what are we actually expecting from this process of fermentation of rice apart from getting good bacteria and Vit B12?

Why will lactic acid bacteria alone dominate when we add yogurt with different kinds bacterial cultures?

It is necessary to cook the rice the previous night add water and a spoon of curd to help fermentation only then the fermentation can occur. Only this fermented rice contains the healthy bacteria which is the objective of having fermented rice. And do not forget to soak the rice before cooking that helps to activate the enzymes in the rice.

see the explanation about ratio of good balance and bad balance.

Simple logic of Competition and dominance.

Try with small red onions (Shallots). The sulphur in it can help the throat from get over reacted to bacteria and producing phlegm.

Is it important to explain how to disinfect the fermented water with either spices and salt or the rice with chili and onion

We have the fermented bacteria to colonize the gut and tilt the ratio of good bacteria to the higher side. Ancient people did not disinfect and fermented products like yogurt and fermented rice. It was avoided to take care of gut bacteria.

Question from a friend: I saw a video where the guy soaks only for four hours and throws away the soaking water. Is this correct.
People do all variations of soaking ....like only for 4 hours and throwing the water. Intention of action is different as I always write in five levels. His soaking for 4 hours is to make it soft, no other thought than that. His throwing water is to get rid of smell of the soaking.

What I mention is more than softness and smell. You could do like him or like what I suggest. Both of us are correct in our own level , but the results are different. This also applies to any action. This is also the karma theory. Whatever everyone does is right and get results accordingly.
