This long grain Red Rice contains more of the Natural Bran than white rice does. For this reason it requires a longer cooking time and has a nuttier more complex flavor than processed White Rices.
The firm and hearty texture of Himalayan Style Red Rice is perfect for salads and pilafs. It goes remarkably well with steamed vegetables, grilled fish and light meats. Combine Red Rice with white rice for textural and visual interest. The full shape and rosy color make it a wonderful choice for meals showcasing rice.
Add 1 cup of rice to 2-1/4 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 40 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving. Yields 4 cups cooked.
