How to cook
1. Purple rice should be rinsed three or four times in cool water before cooking.
2. Use 2 cups of water to each cup of rice and bring the pan to a gentle boil with a tablespoon of olive oil or butter, and a pinch of salt. It can also be boiled in stock, or in coconut water for a sweet taste.
3. Cover the pot and let it simmer until all the liquid is absorbed, which usually takes around 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, keeping the pit covered, and let it stand for 5 minutes.
4. For softer rice, use an extra quarter of a cup of water and cook over a low flame for a further 10 minutes.
