Red rice is unhulled or partially hulled rice with the germ left intact. This germ, or embryo of the grain, is rich in iron, protein and fiber. Foods rich in fibre can aid in weight loss, control blood sugar and lower cholesterol. Red rice is also rich in B vitamins, calcium, zinc and iron, manganese, selenium, magnesium and other nutrients. It is enriched with antioxidants that can help fight damaging free radicals – red rice gets its rich colour from an antioxidant called anthocyanins that is believed to reduce inflammation, allergy, prevent risks of cancer and help in weight management.
Cooking instructions: Rinse and soak rice overnight. Drain, and combine 1 cup rice with 2 cups water and salt to taste in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 45 minutes until all of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat, and allow to sit undisturbed for 10 minutes. Red rice has a beautifully, nutty flavour when cooked. Adding lemon juice to the preparation helps in better absorption of iron in red rice and reduces stickiness.
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place.
