How to cook black rice?

Due to its high fibre, black rice requires more water than other rice.

Wash the rice gently 1-2 times so that dust/dirt separates.

Soak this rice in water for at least 5 hours. On soaking, the rice water will become dark purple as the water-soluble vitamins leach out in the water due to the long soaking. This is a completely natural phenomenon and this water is to be used for cooking too (Do not discard).

Cook preferably using a mud pot/stone pot/brass pot/ traditional Indian cooking pot. If nothing is available, then a steel pot will do. Put warm water, if needed while cooking. Can add a teaspoon of wood-pressed oil while cooking. Avoid using a pressure cooker to get maximum nutrients.

Even after cooking, it remains chewy like any other unpolished rice variety.
