Did you know how to prepare Black Rice

Black rice is also identified as forbidden rice in China as it was once only accessible to the rich. It is really hard rice that requires soaking overnight prior to actually cooking. Even though this rice does have a very dark black colour, once cooked, it did turn into a lovely dark purple colour. I'm completely obsessed with this gloomy purple colour; it's so breathtaking and vivid.

The existence of anthocyanin, a potent antioxidant, is the principal cause of its healthy food standing. Black rice is also a good source of fibre and includes phytonutrients that assist to purify the body. This organic detoxifier has an elevated iron and nutrient content.

Did you know how to prepare Black Rice? Let's look at some recipes to help you understand.

Besides the health advantages, I like this rice for its separate textures. There are a few key points to keep in mind when gearing up kavuni arisi in Tamil Nadu. This rice needs to drench for at least 6 hours (ideally 8 hours or overnight), and it takes a lot longer to cook.
