Steamed Chinese Black Rice, also known as the Emperors Rice, is a glutinous medium grain rice, perfect for both sweet and savory dishes. This Rice has a rich, sweet flavor and a slightly sticky texture. It is black in color prior to cooking and imparts a beautiful shiny, indigo color after cooking. It is traditionally used in Taiwan and Mainland China as a dessert ingredient, however creative western chefs have incorporated this rice in main courses for striking plate presentations. Steamed rice has been through a special cooking process prior to milling, while in the paddy form, the rice is soaked and then steam cooked. The texture of the rice becomes firmer and less sticky. It is a much more durable and easier to cook. Steamed Chinese Black Rice can be used for virtually anything a regular white rice can be used for, both savory and sweet. Make beautiful pilafs, salads (hot and cold) and dessert puddings. Can be used as a bed for seafood, poultry or meat. Use in sushi rolls for a lavish, unusual twist on traditional sushi.
