So I've had some Lotus Foods forbidden rice (about 2 c dry, maybe?) kicking around unopened in my cabinets for months now. It looked cool, I bought it, I haven't done squat with it.

I'd love suggestions for it - haven't cooked with it before, don't really know what it tastes or cooks up like. First, can I make it on the white rice cycle of my rice cooker (also have brown rice, sushi rice, porridge options)? I'm looking for something that will showcase its color and flavor a little bit, since I recall it being a tad expensive (for rice).

(apologies if this has been covered - a forum search didn't turn up much)

I'd probably use the brown rice option. It is pretty good with coconut milk. I've just cooked it up and used it with regular dishes but a thai/coconutty curry would be good too.

this, exactly, if forbidden rice is what i think it is. it's black rice, right? i liked how sticky it was. mmmm! goes lovely with thai food. and i did use the brown rice option on my cooker and it was perfect.

It's a just like brown rice. I like it in rice pudding because the rice itself stays dark but the puddingy part is pinkish. It really highlights the colors.

This is awesome! As soon as I saw the thread title I was going to share this recipe from my blog, but you beat me to it, Bodhi! The egginess is from pre-vegan days but now I make it with avocado all the time. It is sooo delicious.

Use the brown rice option on your rice cooker. Black forbidden rice is different from the sticky Thai black rice used in desserts. This rice cooks up firm and toothy with each grain separate. The flavor is great but a bit earthy/strong on its own without a sauce or topping.
