Black sticky rice is a delicious whole-grain alternative to white rice, whether jasmine or sticky, which is the norm in Thailand. Black sticky rice, which is unpolished sticky rice, meaning the bran has not been removed, is purplish black in color and has a chewy texture. This black sticky rice recipe gives you a simple method for how to make black sticky rice, which, like any other rice, can be served with a meal. Black sticky rice is often used to make sweets (mixed with white sticky rice and simmered in coconut milk, for example). Look for black sticky rice in natural-foods stores in the bulk department or with other whole-grain rice.
