# 3025 Looks Matter


Q. Re- Halochos for Tu B’shvat by Toronto Kolel stating that eating cooked/roasted whole wheat or a barley kernel, the Brocha you make on it is Boreh Pri H’adomah.
Kvod Harav , Wouldn’t cooked barley or cooked whole wheat be mezonos? Why is this different than cooked or fried rice?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a explained that eating cooked/roasted whole wheat or a barley kernel means the complete grain including the bran shell, as it comes out from the husk and at that stage the brocho would be Boreh P’ri H’adomah. The same would apply to rice in a similar presentation.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
