Black Rice With Kheer from Imphal

Standard

Black Rice with Kheer

In the Govindevji temple in Imphal, kheer is served with a small portion of black rice. The contrasting colors are a visual treat while the complementing textures tease the palate.

Deep purple Black Rice

Rather than black in color it is deep purple, due to its high content of anthocynins. This was also called the ‘forbidden rice’ as it is consumed only by the Chinese emperors and not available to commoners. A high proven and carbohydrate quotient makes it very healthy but difficult to digest so it is served in very small portions. we were firmly denied a second helping !
