Is rice an okay table food for babies?

I  made some organic brown rice with dinner tonight (we are about to eat), and I am just starting to give DD 9 months old table food. Is the rice okay for her to munch on?

I would mix it with formula or breastmilk.  The grains might tickle her throat and cause a choking hazard....Kind of like inhaling powdered sugar on a doughnut.

Like I would mash it and mix it with the liquid...sorry...I haven't eaten all day and I'm starving and hubby just announced we are going for food...Not thinking straight....Take a picture!!!! :-P  Have fun!

Some of the stage 3 baby food has rice in it so I decided to try. I made hers extra mushy, and she seems to be doing okay with it.
