The rice soaks up all the wonderful flavors of the sesame, garlic and ginger and it gets nice and crispy. This forbidden rice has become one of our household essentials. My mom was the first one who introduce to black rice and I love it more the brown rice it is my go to rice.
The fragrant of black rice, also known as purple rice, which turns to a deep purple when it’s cooked, is an impressive addition to any dish.
The black color of uncooked forbidden rice is due to its outer coating of black bran, which gives the rice a rich nutty flavor and provides important dietary fiber and other nutrients such as iron, vitamin E and antioxidants and heart health. What’s not to love? Something that tastes good and is good for you is a plus!
