Name: Rice Flake or Flattened Rice Or Chira
What it is: Flattened rice, commonly known as Chira, is rice which is flattened into flat, light, dry flakes. These flakes of rice swell when added to liquid, whether hot or cold, as they absorb water, milk or any other liquids. The thickness of the flakes varies between almost translucently thin (the more expensive varieties) to nearly four times thicker than a normal rice grain.
