Makes about 4 cups

Thai Black rice (Thai wild rice)

- 2 cups

Boiling water

Water in a steamer

A traditional way to cook Thai black rice is to soak rice in cold water over night, then steam over boiling water for 30 minutes.

For a quick method of preparing steamed Thai black rice:

Soak black rice in 2 cups of boiling water for 20 minutes. While rice is
soaking, prepare steamer by putting 10 cups of water into the steamer and bringing to boil. Place black or dark colored cloth napkin on steamer tray  (white colored cloth will get dark stain from black rice). Drain soaked rice through the napkin, into the water below then fold the 4 sides to cover rice.  Cover steamer with a lid and steam for 20 minutes. Remove cooked rice from steamer and rice is ready to be eaten or used to prepare other dishes.
