  1. I love the colour…a great trick to use black to turn the white one into purple.

  2. OMG! When I read purple rice, I thought it’s cooking the uncooked purple/black grains, now knowing it’s actually a little black rice making the white rice purple! I also enjoyed the purple rice served in a Korean tofu hotpot (soon dubu) over here.
