Black rice is creamy in texture and nutty in flavour when cooked. I like black rice either as plain or even with coconut milk. You can serve this with a spicy dish with some spiced chilli sauce or even with fresh fruits like mangoes or pineapple.

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.
