When I visited my 2nd elder daughter, she prepared a blue rice for my lunch. I was astonished for it's my first time to see and eat that. The colored rice I ate before was brown and purple one. She told me that the rice is well-milled white rice and it's cooked with several flowers of blue ternate. I check it from the net. It's Clitoria ternatea, commonly known as Asian pigeonwings, bluebellvine, blue pea, butterfly pea, cordofan pea and Darwin pea. Its flower is used as a natural food colouring to colour glutinous rice. It's also good for memory enhancing, nootropic, antistress, anxiolytic, antidepressant, anticonvulsant, tranquilizing, and sedative properties. It may enhance female libido due to its similar appearance to the female reproductive organ. My daughter's arthritis is cured when she used it as her morning tea by putting a 7 pieces of blue ternate in a cup of hot water. Have you seen this? Tried this?

When you cook rice you add this flower and the rice will turn to blue.

This is the first time that I've heard of the blue rice. Maybe it was planted in the blue lagoon, waheehee.
