Manipuri Black Rice (CHAK-HAO) - 500g
For centuries, black rice was forbidden for common people making it reserved for only Chinese royalty. However, it has always been part of various delicacies made in North East India. Traditionally known as CHAK-HAO in Manipur, black rice has emerged as a super food in recent time due to its high nutritional value.
Though black rice is nowadays cultivated in other parts of India as well, this black rice is darker and is having a special aroma and taste due to the soil condition and the pristine environment of north east India where it is grown.
Black rice is gluten free, gut-friendly, a natural cleanser, and is rich in antioxidants and dietary fiber. It is lower on calories but higher in protein content as compared to white rice. It is also a good source of iron, vitamins, calcium, magnesium, zinc and many other nutrients. It is believed to lower the risk of diabetes, cancer, heart disease and even help in weight loss.
Sticky in nature, black rice is also suitable for making PORRIDGE, DESSERT and SWEET DISHES.
Rinsing and soaking the rice before cooking will help to bring the cooking time down. As a general rule, black rice should be cooked with two cups of water to every one cup of rice, and it will need to cook for 20 to 30 minutes after soaking, or up to 60 minutes if you cook unsoaked rice
Note: Note: There are some basic things to know about how to cook black rice. For one, black rice takes quite a bit longer to cook than white rice, about 60 minutes, though you can cut that cooking time down substantially if you soak it ahead of time ( at least 5-6 hours). For another, its black color will stain, so be sure that you don’t let it come into contact with your clothes.
