Black Rice is called as forbidden rice. Its originated in Asia and famous all over the world for its health benefits. Mostly for the level of antioxidants, vitamins , Minerals and fibre. It was a precious rice that only the emperors used in some Asian countries.  The black colour comes from anticyclonic, a powerful antioxidant. Some times the colour of this rice may vary from dark purple to black.

For me I find its very nice and creamy in taste. The colour goes light once cooked but this rich and the creamier taste makes it goes well with anything.

This recipe is for one cup of black rice. Black rice needs overnight soaking. Now you can buy parboiled rice that doesn’t need soaking at all. Soaking makes it easy to cook.

You can buy black rice online or in health shops.

Measure one cup rice and wash thoroughly several times and soak 30 minutes.

For each cup of rice add 2 cups of water.

Add enough salt and cook on high and bring the water to boil and then reduce the flame and cook on low until dry.

Once well cooked it will look like this. Serve with anything as you wish. You can freeze this rice individually up to 3 months.

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
