Korean cooking forum topics:
Maangchi, could you post a video showing about how to make “purple” Korean rice? I had it many times, both in my host house and in restaurants. I have been told to “buy grains and mix” but I have no idea what grains will turn the rice purple, and how much to use!!
its’ called ‘heuk mee bap’ (흑미밥)
you just buy 흑미 (heuk-me-black rice) and mix it with normal sucrose rice. depending on the ratio between the black rice and the normal rice it will be darker purple (more black rice) or lighter purple (less black rice)
you can add a lot of beans to rice as well but make sure to soak the beans in water over night and then put them in with your normal rice. if you dont’ soak them in water then they won’t cook all the way and will be hard.
my family has mixed normal rice with glutinous rice before to give it chewier and fluffier feel in your mouth.
you can also just use brown rice (make sure to add a little more water than you normally would for normal white rice) or you can mix the two.
