Black Rice, Anyone?
December 6, 2017 11:47pm CST
Speaking of healthier rice, this is the one, black rice. We call this variety as "ballatinaw"-- a variety of rice which should be glutinous but is so good when added with regular white rice. This is what I had this lunch, a black rice with the gingered soup base shrimps added with the petchay leaves. Though the rice is pricey but because of its uses and health benefits, many people try to have this in their table.

I remember a friend of my mother used to give us this black rice, balatinaw, from the mountain province. I think I already forgot how it tastes like. I also like dudumen. It's also a bit black, right? But it's not naturally black in color but because it was put on fire if I am not mistaken.

I eat whatever rice is the lowest cost so right now I have white rice I got on sale 1 lb for 25 cents. I bought 4 bags it should last me awhile. Brown rice is healthier though. Yellow rice is yummy but I have never heard of black rice before.
