Rice and it’s role. According to the Master (“Mar”), if you chew rice, the blessing is borei prei ha’adamah (“who creates fruit of the ground”). But if it is ground, baked and soaked, the blessing is borei menai mezonot (“who creates various kinds of foods”).
Just interesting to see that the same ingredients can change category depending on how (or if) it is prepared. The source is the same, but our involvement changes it – which changes the way we acknowledge it before G-d. It not just about ingredients, it is also about our partnership with G-d in using those ingredients. You change what you have been given and that changes the way you give thanks.
