I'm so confused !
Actually it is black until you cook it then it turns purple. Like purple string beans turn green.

Hmmm so its not exactly rice. Well I guess that's okay. I wanted something good in like a kind of tropical rice dish (a.k.a. coconut milk, and maybe some bell pepper, not that tropical i suppose). I was thinking basmati as I have heard very highly of it, and is used in Indian cuisine among others if I am correct. Anyways thanks to all you guys for posting.

Mitch:

I think it IS exactly rice. Check the links posted earlier in the thread. When we were talking about wild rice (different from black rice) I said THAT wasn't really rice.

Mitch - as Andy said - read the links! It is real rice, unlike North American wild rice which is a seed.

Black rice gets it's color and nutty flavor from not being hulled like white rice.
