Thai Black Rice - Glossary Term

view glossary term online:
A long-grain rice from Thailand that is actually a form of sticky rice, but because the black bran layers are not removed from the rice during processing, the rice does not stick together when cooked. Thai black rice has a sweet nutty flavor and like some other varieties of black rice, it develops a purple color when cooked. In Thailand, it is usually not eaten as part of the main meal, but is instead sweetened with sugar and coconut milk and used as a dessert or snack. It is very filling, so it is usually eaten in small quantities.
