Chinese black rice, also known as the Emperor’s Rice, is glutinous medium-grain rice that’s slightly sticky with a silky dark indigo color when cooked. We source all-natural rice with a rich, sweet flavor.
Chinese black rice can be used for virtually anything regular white rice can be used for, both savory and sweet, for more eye-catching color and complimenting textures.
Use for beautiful pilafs, salads (hot and cold) and as a bed for seafood, poultry or meat.
Use in place of, or mixed with sushi rice in sushi rolls for a lavish, unusual twist on traditional sushi.
Impressive in rice puddings, rice molds and rice balls.
Use to impart a deep indigo color into other foods.
